In Senegal and across West Africa, when challenges arise, a gathering – referred to as a “pénc” in the local language of Wolof – is called to bring together the whole community for discussion.

Mwenya Immaculate Mwamba is glad that these conversations also result in long-lasting friendships and alliances that allow for collaborations between leaders across Africa and the entire world.

To follow up on the wellbeing panel discussion that our Founder and Executive Director was a part of at the initiative Africa Convening in Uganda in July 2023, Mwenya actively participated in “The Wellbeing Summit” Dakar – Thiès, hosted by Tostan. It was a transformative gathering that aimed to empower individuals, organizations and communities to foster well-being in professional, personal and community settings.

In an increasingly challenging global context, a focus on holistic wellbeing has never been more relevant, especially for those at the center of social change and wellbeing efforts.

Moulding/Recycling Activity: Making paper maché from old newspapers. We asked members of the Paideia Club to bring newspapers from their homes for a recycling activity. Apart from a small fraction of pupils taking art lessons, prior to the activity, most of them did not know that you can recycle paper into paper maché, using it to sculpt interesting objects. These are some of the green and innovative skills that the members of the club gain to promote sustainability in their communities.

What does well-being mean to you?

Sometimes, organizations can be so carried away by implementation activities that we forget about our well-being and that of our participants. Today, members of the Paideia Club engaged in a WELL-BEING activity that allowed them to express how they felt starting their final term. As we can see, others are happy, broken, excited, loved, sick, blessed, anxious, and so many more. It is vital to have these mental health check-ins with ourselves. They allow us to be in check with our emotions, therefore allowing us to radiate positivity to bring change into our lives, that of others, and the entire world. Remember, you cannot pour from an empty cup.

On August 31st, 2023, the Paideia Project visited Amos Youth Centre (AYC) in Shikoswe, Kafue. This event was organized alongside Natubelenge Children's Library. The networking opportunity was a Peer Visit that was created to motivate our volunteers, leverage AYC’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system, learn about the interactive methods infused in their special needs program, and learn more about the meaningful impact that they are making in their community.

Mwenya Immaculate Mwamba (Founder and Executive Director), and Chanda Banda (Project Coordinator on the Jacaranda School Project), travelled to Uganda for the Global Fund for Children Children – GFC’s Partnerships to Educate All Kids (PEAK) initiative Africa Convening that brought together their grassroots partners from across Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, and Zambia. The Paideia Project’s take home from it is the continuous engagement of children in our programs and collaborations to drive change and make meaningful impact in our communities. There should be, EMPATHY IN ACTION.

We established the Paideia Club, a climate action club in February 2023 at Jacaranda School based within Lusaka, Zambia. This follows the mandate given to us by the Ministry of Education. We are happy to be providing green skills that encourage sustainability among young people.

The Paideia Project is delighted to announce the approval and recommendation from the Ministry of Education to open the Paideia club in schools in Lusaka, Zambia as a way to support the ministry’s efforts in the delivery of climate change education. This is in accordance with the initiative’s plight to use interactive visual aids and youth advocacy initiatives to incorporate a climate-smart education system into our existing curriculum. It is important that we carry out educational programs that strengthen young people’s ability to respond and adapt to the climate emergency. This can only be done by actively involving them in the problem-solving process, so that they think beyond where we are now, and shape the world we live in. Always remember that, WHEN YOU EDUCATE, YOU ACTIVATE. Therefore, schools should be the driver of climate action in our communities.

The Paideia Project is a recipient of a grant partnership with Global Fund for Children under their Partnerships to Educate All Kids (PEAK) Initiative supported by the LEGO Foundation. It is vital to have play based activities through our efforts to introduce a climate-smart education system through the development of interactive visual aids from recycled material, and the creation and improvement of youth advocacy initiatives in schools. “Children learn as they play. More importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.” – O. Fred Donaldson. Therefore, it is vital to harness creativity and innovation on how to accomplish this and ensure children have activities that focus on a holistic approach to education.

“The 2030 Agenda envisions a secure world free of poverty and hunger, with full and productive employment, access to quality education and universal health coverage, the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, and an end to environmental degradation.” We only have 7 years until 2030, yet there is so much left to do. It is important that we work together to achieve peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. Our hope is that our activities through collaborative efforts contribute to its attainment.

We look forward to sharing this journey with you!


Our supportive programs are inspired to motivate pupils to do something vital rather than become someone important, and the career guidance department is one that focuses on an individual’s personality development, hence it needs to be supported.

According to a quick google search, Youth Advocacy is the process of identifying, understanding, and addressing issues that are important to young people. By advocating for kids in school, community, and society at large, we inspire community-led solutions among them. Therefore, our initiatives promoting quality education and climate action encourages civic engagement commitments which in turn revolutionises our communities.


The interactive visual aid (IVA) is made from simple material (a sawdust board: a by-product of woodworking) and maize seeds (as a form of braille) that can be sourced easily, and can be customised with art to beautify classroom walls. The IVA concepts are introduced, support is then provided, and the pupils make their own in the Paideia club for their classes with subject teacher supervision.

Interactive visual aids (IVAs) are creative tools that can be used to address challenges like the teacher-to-pupil ratio prevalent in most community schools.The IVAs are made from recycled material to promote a more sustainable environment due to the climate emergence we are experiencing. These learning aids are not solely for visual learners but children with special needs who are often funnelled into subjects or activities that prepare them for trade careers while ignoring their academic development.

This initiative is currently in its implementation stage. With the permission of the Ministry of Education we have been given the mandate to launch the club in schools. To promote creativity and innovation, the pupils develop interactive visual aids with teacher supervision. They are coupled with activities to encourage civic engagement among young people. The club, a mirror of our organisation, ensures the sustainability of our programs as the Paideia Project.

The Paideia Project is carrying out a five day social media campaign starting today for people to learn more about us. Today learn about WHO WE ARE, WHY THE NAME PAIDEIA and OUR VISION? We hope the campaign is educative and inspires collaborations to foster quality education and climate action in our communities.

This is a song by a great friend of mine, he gave me a go ahead to adding it to this particular piece that I worked on. Please have a listen. The full song is available on on this particular post and the Paideia Project’s other socials.


Climate Change is an African Problem. Climate Change is my problem too.

Hey guys! As part of the Paideia Project’s continued effort for COVID-19 responses, I made a video presentation on Climate Change. In this presentation, I share a story quite close to me relating it to the crossroads that Africa is in as the world tries to provide solutions “for us”. Please follow this link to listen/watch. Share for awareness :)


We later asked these women what future they hope to see in education and here's what they had to say:
