Pamoja Snaps is our little attempt to spread good news. At the best of times the Internet can be hard to deal with. You are scrolling, scrolling, scrolling. Hitting bad news story, after bad news story, after bad news story. But now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it can create levels of stress that just aren’t healthy.
Pamoja Snaps a way of celebrating our friends and collaborators and their friends and collaborators. A break to appreciate what brings us joy and happiness. A mechanism to share new ideas about how to maintain positivity and kindness. We’re using it to visualise this big, messy, interconnected community that provides us with support, stimulation and sustenance.
Pamoja Snaps is a nice name because Pamoja means togetherness and snaps (when you click your finger and thumb) are a way of showing appreciation. They are an alternative to clapping that is less distressing for people with sensory processing disorders. You can also snap to show appreciation and it doesn’t drown out the speaker. We want to give snaps to you all!
