An African proverb says that it takes a village to raise a child. This means that the collective efforts to nurture and raise children implicates all. We strongly believe that there is no issue that is not a children's issue, because anything that affects society will in turn impact the child. Our vision is that in celebrating Children's Awareness Week, we will bring clarity to central issues involving children and society. This week's events and activities will educate the Tufts' campus and its neighboring communities, foster meaningful dialogue, and inspire community involvement.
