The name Raha means ‘happiness’, and Mulalo is a name meaning ‘peace’. Swahili families are large and centered around the eldest man of an extended family. The family includes his wives, his brothers and their wives, and all their children. In the traditional and modern African culture, babies and young infants are generally cared for by their grandmothers. The role of the mother is to work in the fields, tending the crops and collecting food, and ensuring enough water for the whole family.
