The intellect of the child of the village is traditionally developed and grown through the activities, tasks, programmes, events, projects, and games that he or she is put through in the village. The concept emanates from the African belief that the children are born of the families but belong to the village. Their well-being is the joint responsibility of all the elders of the village. The mothers and fathers play different roles in collectively bringing up the children of the village. They are the eyes and ears of the village regarding the nurturing of the children. Having grown up in such an environment in the small rural village of Moripane in Sekhukhune District of Limpopo Province, South Africa, I can appreciate the warmth such an environment provides to the children as they are growing up. This practice happened naturally. You felt that deep love and genuine care even when you were reprimanded. If you were disciplined by an elder in the village because of your wrongdoing you would not rush home to report the incident. If you do that, they will punish you even further. They had the conviction that the elder would not wrongly reprimand you. You would go all out to hide the fact that you were caught misbehaving.
