To be a good neighbour and to look-out for each other are incontrovertible axioms of a civilized community. Nonetheless, in our “modern” fast pace society that is preoccupied with consumerism and material acquisition, acts of humanitarianism are progressively devalued in our communities, and in some cases they are on the verge of extinction. YEA will remind students of the African practice: It Takes a Village to Raise a Child. The students will be impressed to restore this culture in their communities.
