Family Structure The basic social unit of the country is the family, which also includes the intermediate family members aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and other outside relations godparents and close friends. As such, many children have several godparents and when parents are out of the country to work, children are mostly left to the grandparents to watch over them.
