Raised By A Village
Recall the old adage: "It takes a village to raise a child." The village of Usangi is found nestled in the Usangi Mountains on the north eastern border of Tanzania. The people live a very simplistic life, and at the core of all interactions is respect. Respect for elders, relatives, neighbors- respect for others. Each mountain is home to a different group of families, though all families coexist, essentially working to support one another. This sense of unity is what fosters belonging in the community and sets an ideal for which we should all strive.
