Turning one on The Baraza

This Baraza Mat is a circle of 20 ‘chairs’. It’s a Swahili (African) gathering held to share collective wisdom. A Baraza is a social affair where current events are discussed, knowledge is built, and relationships forged.  Children can graduate to one from naught, on the Baraza, or anywhere else for that matter.

      I’m unsure if anyone told the kids about it, I just rang my sister afterwards to ask about it. Probably should though, tell them about it. Like you said, they are profound.
