The Village Project

There is an African proverb that has been widely used, which says, “It takes an entire Village to raise a child”. This adage became a popular expression in American societies when staggering statistics began to support the notion that urban, impoverished communities presented dismal opportunities for youth and young adults to find pathways for breaking cycles of poverty. The axiom presented the mindset associated with a Yoruban concept that everyone in ones society was responsible for the success of children; not just the parents. Schools, government, marketplace and parochial representation were responsible for supporting the same messages of success and taking an active role in providing opportunities and nurturing of children. The result was simple according to the wise counsel. It was this- investing in children and community advocacy was equivalent to investing in the future.
