Trusted Social Capital
How might we help parents effectively leverage trusted social capital in their communities?
Something that faces parents the world over – including in low-income communities – is their availability to be present during their children's early development while balancing the need to bring in money to support their families.
In many low-income communities I've visited in India, multiple generations of a family live within a single household or close by.
How might we help parents leverage this support network better? What tools could create and enhance connections across this network? How might we draw upon trusted social capital to support parents who need to be out of the home to earn a living?
