Conscious Practice to Transformation

WE ARE

Patient

enough to listen carefully to learn how to support communities in finding their own solutions

Persistent

enough to work at the grassroots level with every one of the 33 villages in our district to realize their goals

Humble

enough to stay in one district, where we know the people and the context

Daring

enough to try new approaches as we strive to improve our practice and deepen our impact

Driven

enough to undergo change ourselves as we facilitate others to change

What We Do

Reflective Leadership
  • In a four-day training we work with the entire village leadership of 30 women and men, supporting them to become better listeners and be more appreciative and facilitative in their interaction with others. Transformative leadership skills are developed and maintained through reflective training and coaching.

MERL & Sharing

Our Culture on the move
  • Our Culture and traditions are subject to a dynamic process of constant change. UZIKWASA engages people in a dialogue guided by the concept “holding on and letting go” and the the question “what is still dear to us and what do feel we would like to let go? We believe that through an in-depth understanding of traditions and practices among all community groups they are enabled to build a new cultural identity for all Pangani residents, a progressive culture that respects the rights of each community, women and men, girls and boys.
