This story does a good job of promoting social capital. it is about Mr. Konate who is a imam at a mosque in New York City. Not only does he preach, but acts as a mediator and interpreter between African immigrants and US hospitals and police. This promotes social capital because he is helping out a community of new immigrants to assimilate, or at least understand American culture and society. They can ban together as a social network of people in and out side of church since they share a religion and everything here is new to them. Most importantly, he is teaching them the ropes in America so they can eventually create their own social networks and start families of their own.
