Helping Hands: Community alliance works together to raise responsible teens

“It takes a whole village to raise a child.” This Igbo and Yoruba (Nigeria) proverb exists in different forms in many African languages. The basic meaning is that child upbringing is a communal effort. This communal responsibility in raising children also is seen in the Sukuma (Tanzania) proverb, “One knee does not bring up a child” and in the Swahili (East and Central Africa) proverb, “One hand does not nurse a child” (the Rev. Joseph G. Healey, M.M., Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania).
