To SPAC, education is the key to bring about changes and development. Playful, respectful, professional and close to everyday reality of children and adults – these are the characteristics of the pedagogical concept applied in Odzala-Kokoua through projects like the community centre Sanza Mobimba, early childhood education, and wildlife and conservation education.
A SPECIAL PLACE
The people in Odzala are not any better or smarter than anywhere else in the world. But they live in a special place. Especially beautiful, especially alive, especially important: Odzala is part of the second largest coherent rainforest area on earth. Hence this piece of Central Africa has a significant impact on our global climate, and the existence of all life.
For us, who are coming from abroad, it is important that all changes are sustained by the communities. This is a precondition for further development.
What makes the men and women of the villages near Odzala join the projects? Change has to mean improvement – concrete improvements of life quality. Work to support the family. Training and support for crafts and business. Schools for all girls and boys, adequately trained teachers, and teaching materials.
