Imameleng is based in Cape Town and her experience is predominantly in design thinking to contribute towards developing stronger community initiatives for citizens. Originally from Lesotho, her passion for social justice is centred around women and children related issues. She in interested in translating her work into pathways for enhancing social accountability in communities.
She has tested her initiative at one local primary school in Cape Town, Bonga Primary, to see the results of conducting mindfulness and design thinking in a classroom environment to enhance the learning environment. In addition, she will be piloting the project with Molo Mhlaba (a private girls-only STEM school in Khayelitsha). Her primary objective is on drawing solutions from within these groups, including interfacing with authorities and decision-makers.
Through the virtual Accountability Incubator, Imameleng would like to develop an accountability toolkit that integrates mindfulness and design thinking principles to build engaged citizenship among young people. The toolkit would be an affordable resource and accessible across all kinds of devices.
