Community Oriented Values

In African communities, the concept of family extends beyond biological ties. You don’t just have two parents, you have an entire village of aunties and uncles watching over you! It’s not uncommon to be scolded by a random stranger for misbehaving. But don't worry, it's just the whole community making sure you grow up to be a decent human being, and let’s face it, the collective wisdom of the neighbourhood can be both hilarious and exasperating!

In African communities, everyone is your auntie and uncle. They play a vital role in shaping your upbringing and providing a sense of belonging. They are always there with a mix of guidance, support, and of course, their unique brand of humour. Whether it is Auntie Rosie with her theoretical storytelling or Uncle Musisi with his quick wit, the community becomes a comedy troupe making everyday life a little more entertaining, so embrace the humor and community-oriented values that Africans hold dear. Laugh along with your extended family members, appreciate their wisdom, and enjoy the laughter that comes from the shared experiences of a close-knit community. In African communities, everyone plays a role in creating a vibrant and joyful atmosphere where laughter is never in short supply.
