We are thrilled to announce that our project, Hope After Covid, won the King’s College Civic Challenge for 2020-2021. PCAP will receive £5,000 from King’s College London to launch this project this summer.
At the Civic Challenge Grand Final, hosted on 22nd April 2021, and attended by over 150 people, PCAP was declared winner for addressing the UN’s SDG 3: Good health and wellbeing with its idea to use traditional African wellness techniques to support local people to overcome the negative effects of COVID-19. PCAP will support people from Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth and Westminster to address the impact COVID-19 has had on their lives, and use tools like music, visualisation and breathing exercises to overcome them. A self-help toolkit will be accompanied by weekly group sessions where participants can support and befriend each other.
PCAP hugely congratulates and thanks its staff members Sylvie Aboa-Bradwell and Ohenewaa Adu-Akyeampong; the King’s students Zenab Ali, MSc Mental Health Studies, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, Christa Haindl, BA International Development, Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy, Chris Ray, MSc Public Policy & Management, King’s Business School, Emma Triccò, BA International Relations Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy and Zubeir Woozeer, BA International Development, Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy, and King’s alumni coach, management consultant James Man.
