Today – International Day of Families

Family: where life begins and love never ends!

Family is the single most important influence in the lives of young people. Good family is crucial to young people’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.  We all are, to a large extent, a reflection of our families.

Our families hold us together and give us a lasting sense of belonging. Families are like branches on a tree; we grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one. Those who grow up in loving and nurturing environments are more likely to develop into healthy and happy individuals with high aspirations and a good chance of realizing their full potential.

We at Conversations for Change appreciate the value and blessings that our families have brought our way. Let’s celebrate – call up your siblings and parents, give them a treat, and show them how much they mean to you. Who are we without our families? Happy International Day of Family!
