There is an African proverb that states “It takes an entire village to raise a child”. That an entire community that interacts positively with children will ensure that children grow in a healthy environment. This is true for all communities. As Malbekians, our focus is to nurture and interact positively with our communities, whether it is here at Malbek, or where we live. Through positive interaction, we promote emotional and social well-being and create cooperation. Our goal is to encourage, promote and support participation in local community events and by inviting community leaders to speak to Malbekians about important social issues. Through cooperation, understanding, and participation we are ensuring our “village” is a safe and healthy place to thrive.
