In West Africa, children benefit from a large network of relationship supports which include the extended family and the immediate community. Children largely play within their peer groups and benefit from informal guidance and mentoring provided by older children within their community. Bawo Ni offers a platform for West African culturally-based youth mentoring. Your children benefit from virtual engagement in hands-on creative play activities or homework support sessions with youth volunteers from the West African community in Canada.
