Pan-Afrikan Internationalist Link of Cross-Community Educational Exchanges (MALAIKA-PAILOCCEE)
Coordinator: Aura Balanta J. Carreno Caicedo
The MALAIKA-PAILOCCEE is a specific young female-led project of the XRISN that is going to be initially funded for a while by XR to enable Aura Carreno to develop it in doing groundwork for the reconstruction, revitalization and reinforcement of the International Secretariat of the XR Red de Afinidad de Abya Yala del Sur (XRRAAYS). The MALAIKA-PAILOCCEE proceeds towards reinvigorating the XRRAAYS International Secretariat in the stride of fulfilling its initial role of doing groundwork towards our XRISN Link-Networking with Afrodescendant youth and their own as well as other neighbouring Communities of Resistance in and beyond Abya Yala (the so-called Americas, including the Caribbean); doing so with a view to the Intersectionality driven Gender Equity promotion of Pan-Afrikan Internationalist engagement in Cross-Community Decolonizational Educational Exchanges between youths in their own Afrikan Heritage and other Communities of Resistance throughout the World.
The MALAIKA-PAILOCCEE is seen as an experimental Pan-Afrikan opening for female Afrodescendant youth and their friends from other Communities of Resistance in and beyond Abya Yala to chart, with their own Black Power creativity of Decolonising Education, their own Reparatory Justice pathway of Planet Repairs; doing so with their own collectivist agency as culturally appropriate to themselves and their communities, towards the Global Justice Internationalist Solidarity vision, values, principles, ethos, mission, aims and objectives of XRISN as shared with the XRRAAYS. That is why the MALAIKA-PAILOCCEE will also be a special Action Learning and Action Research operation of the "MAANGAMIZINUNYANSA Legacies of Enslavement and Colonization for Community Regenerative Action Learning (MAANGAMIZINUNYANSA-LECCRAL)", under the auspices of our XRISN-supported Peoples' Internationalist Fora for Inter-Community Lifelong Learning (PIFICOLL).
