In the Swahili language, Harambee
means “all pull together”.
Following Kenya's independence in 1963, President Jomo Kenyatta adopted the concept of Harambee as an important tool in the process of nation building.
The national motto of Kenya, Harambee symbolizes a proud tradition of neighbor helping neighbor - communally lifting each other up.
Harambee events may range from informal affairs lasting a few hours, in which invitations are spread by word of mouth, to formal, multi-day events advertised via the mass media. These events have long been important in parts of East Africa, as ways to build and maintain strong and vibrant communities.
Harambee Farm is being developed as a 'meeting place', an 'incubator' (for the nurturing of sport horses - as well as ideas, socially progressive programs and the arts) and a 'haven of rest' for family, friends and honored guests.
As we seek connection within the diverse and socially welcoming communities of the Carolina hunt country, we actively embrace the philosophy of Harambee - in our personal, intellectual and professional lives.
