Pamoja – exercise about global wages

Pamoja Kwa Haki meaning ‘Together for Rights’ in Swahili is Trócaire’s long term human rights programme in post primary schools. Based on rotating case studies, Pamoja guides and encourages students to look at the root causes of poverty using particular Development Education tools and techniques. This learning is applied to a particular human rights and global justice issue or theme which leads to action based approach to awareness raising. Past themes have focused on Climate Change in Kenya, Gender Inequality in Malawi and Rebuilding communities in Uganda. The Pamoja project can be undertaken as part of a Development Education module, as a Transition Unit or within a subject class or Peace and Justice extracurricular group.


In order to support schools undertaking a Pamoja project Trócaire provides education resources, information on the case studies, activity days, in school support and certification on completion of the project.
