A Woman of Wisdom: Nontombi Naomi Tutu Nozizwe – Mother of Many Lands Naomi Tutu is the third child Archbishop Desmond and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. Growing up the ‘daughter of …’ has offered Naomi Tutu many opportunities and challenges in her life. Most impor- tant of these has been the challenge to find her own place in the world. She has taken up the challenge and channeled the oppor- tunities that she has been given to raise her voice as a champion for the dignity of all. Naomi feels we all have a choice of how we live in the world, and with the huge problems if we each take responsibility for the place we are in – try to make a change in the way of relationships in our own neighborhoods and country, it will spread to the whole world. It’s not all on one person – when we realize that we’re not all alone, we have a greater chance of making those differences.
