From a young age Queen Diambi has always been very interested in all matters concerning the restoration of the African
Identity through the study of African history and of the cultural traditional Heritage of the continent and beyond. One of her main projects, besides the enterprise of rural development of Central Kasaï is to seek alliances to change the narrative about African People. Indeed the expressions of African cultures have been so brutally repressed and demonized during several centuries in the sole purpose of exploiting the Africans and their land that many Africans have lost the sense of self and what it means to be African today.
Africans across the globe have come accustomed to believe that they are not worthy and that the only way to better their life is to adopt and imitate all the standards of the West to regiment all aspects of their life. Since this is truly an unattainable, utopic and maladaptive enterprise, the Africans are destined to continue their downfall into poverty; that
is material, mental, emotional and spiritual poverty.
To help remediate that situation, Queen Diambi works on promoting the restoration of the African Identity by encouraging people to learn about their true history, and by promoting the appreciation of their African Ancestral heritage in cultures, languages, folklore and traditions, all of which place the greatest value on compassion, respect, solidarity and the primordial role of the Creator in all aspects of existence.
Queen Diambi strongly believe in promoting a culture of peace in the world. She thinks that to insure that we are creating a peaceful environment in an ever challenging global milieu, it is primordial to foster a compassionate attitude, mutual respect and a desire for understanding people who are different and who
sometimes have opposing interests . Queen Diambi has taken many initiatives to create such opportunities by traveling
across the globe to seek friendship and alliances between her People and diverse communities by encouraging people to go outside of their comfort zone to reach out and share about their experiences, culture, history and traditions as well as to learn about others’. In her view the will and the decision to reach out to others with an open heart to highlight similarities in fundamental needs, concerns, values and aspirations is the premise of friendship that can pave the way for peace and prosperity for all.”
