Tawlid means 'generation' in Arabic, which is the most common language spoken in Africa. Family is very important throughout Africa. Families, not individuals, are the building blocks of African society. Most people live in households that include not only the nuclear family (mother, father, and children) but also members of their extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and others). Family members act as both an economic and emotional network and provide individuals with a sense of who they are and where they belong
