Proverb Monday, #45

Proverb: Akɔdaa hunu ne nsa hohoro a, ɔne mpninfoɔ didi.
Meaning: If a child knows how to wash his hands, he eats with the elders.
Context: If you act responsibly, you will share privileges.
No. 3208 in Bu me Bε by Peggy Appiah et al.


  1. humility steps in here too, right?
    Since the elders determine when the child has truly washed his hands well.

  2. I guess so. Sometimes it becomes obvious.

  3. I think here's a similar proverb in my language too. Very true.
