COMPION, J.; VAN DER WALT, J.L.; STEYN, H.J. and WOLHUTER, C.C.. Life- and worldview: Development and transformation - the case of the Lamba of the Masaiti region in Zambia. Koers (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.4, pp.811-832. ISSN 2304-8557.
This article reports on a case study regarding the development and educational transformation of a subgroup of the Lamba living in the Masaiti region of the CopperBelt Province of Zambia, where the Foundation for Cross-Cultural Education in Zambia (FCE) has been serving for the past thirteen years. It was concluded that the current life- and worldview of a community such as the one living in the Masaiti region can be transformed to a truly Christ-centred life- and worldview by firstly taking cognisance of how the community currently expresses itself in terms of each of the universals or components of a life-and worldview, and secondly by subjecting each of those universals or components to a process of life- and worldview transformation. It was furthermore found that life- and worldview transformation should be seen as a prerequisite for the developmental transformation of such communities.
Keywords : education; Christ-centred life- and worldview philosophy; personal transformation.
