Harambee

at a glance

Harambee literally means “all pull together” in Swahili, and is also the official motto of Kenya and appears on its coat of arms. The word Harambee was assimilated into the Swahili language from Hindi at the time of the building of the Uganda Railway from Mombasa to Kampala. Indian labourers used the phrase Har Har Ambeh or Hail Ambeh – an exhortation to Amba the Hindu God of Strength – when performing difficult tasks that often required more than one person to be involved e.g. lifting heavy loads etc. Today its a Kenyan tradition of community self-help events, and is also the official motto of Kenya.
