In the summer of 2010, I taught at a school in Mpigi, Uganda (Africa). While there, I discovered that the most relevant life lessons are the ones that are learned by an entire community.  It does indeed take a village to raise a child but I feel the real reward comes when that child begins to share the lessons learned.  I feel that this project is an expression of that statement.
