"The PAGYA Project" Phase 1: Feeding Bodies, Nourishing Souls




         In Ancient West Africa, the ancestors created Adinkra Symbols to pass down wisdom and tradition throughout the generations.  These symbols would be displayed prominently throughout the villages on clothing and everyday objects to remind the people of who they were and what they collectively believed as a community.  The Adinkra symbol "PAGYA" (pronounced PA-Jah) literally translated to English means "to strike fire"!  This symbol served as a call to motivate the community to band together urgently and by any means necessary to achieve an imperative collective goal!  Thus, we evoke the power of PAGYA to ignite the fire of Community right here in Baltimore with 'The Pagya Project", a grassroots movement to embody not only the change we wish to see in the world, but to cultivate urgency around the change that is needed in our communities!

Phase 1 of the PAGYA Project, "FEEDING BODIES, NOURISHING SOULS" will take place on APRIL 15, 2017 @ 10 AM starting out at Heritage United Church of Christ, and with the help of #Hashtaglunchbag, we will assemble and distribute quality meals to at least 1000 people who are experiencing hunger right in our community.  In each lunch bag, we will insert not only food, but also a message of hope and love that we will write that morning to let someone who is less fortune know that their life matters to all of us.  This will be a movement of love, uplift, and inclusion, and the impact or our city will be nothing short of awesome.

We need YOU to commit to taking action to make our world a place of which we can be proud.  We need YOU to volunteer to build sandwiches.  We need YOU to volunteer to drive meals to distribution locations.  We need YOU to write love notes to folks experiencing hunger.  We need YOU to join the movement, to sacrifice your Saturday (or as much of it as you can) to live out our purpose: to love each other better than we love ourselves. 

SIGN UP TODAY!  We will need an accurate count of Volunteers as soon as possible to ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible.  Sign-up deadline will be April 12, 2017.  The possibilities are endless, so let's spark the fire of community in Baltimore!
