Social Capital from many sources.

Social capital from all aspects of the community. It starts with the family, but extends to friends, community ... school, church, civic groups, healthcare professionals, government. etc.

We need collaboration at all levels for children to be successful.

Hi Eric, interesting post! Any chance you could find an image to go along with it? Images help grab attention and tell a story with higher impact. You should be able to use the Update Entry button on the right of your post and follow the instructions to add images from there. We know occasionally people have issues uploading images so let us know by hitting the Feedback button at the bottom of most pages of our site if you face any problems. Looking forward to seeing more of your inspiring insights on OpenIDEO.

And here's more handy tips on the Research phase:

Great! Not only "the African" ...saying ..I trust "commonness", unity? is human nature i trust the very word community...society...and many similar concepts express a human nature that should be brought forward because they represent the very origin of mankind. I look forward to join and learn more in this direction of "social capital" I too trust that a child's successful futures are a product of many hands, many eyes, many legs, many teachers, many mothers, many fathers, many safaris!!! many governments, many preachers,,,many nurses,,, them....may do's and don'ts ...lets go Eric...Vincent is there also with a village idea.
