Village My'ntima

Village My'ntima promotes and supports youth in and around the University of Lubumbashi and has an explicitly forward looking stance. With an estimated 180 loosely affiliated members and a planning committee of about 10, the village centre, the gathering place, is a large bare tent with a barren football pitch next to it. The informal group organises social events (soccer matches at the city prison, concerts) and serves as a community support network.

In the context of LEALA, the village sets out to conduct futures orientated activities inspired by the Maono Roadbook. Two members of the village committee took part in last summer’s Maono activities and will follow the LEALA workshops of 02013 starting to develop the skills and knowledge needed for guiding   for their fellow villagers towards futures oriented thinking and ation.
