We provide people with opportunities to give their time and/or resources so that we can inspire local action and increase capacity to affect positive changes.
To provide people with opportunities to give their time and/or resources so that we can inspire local action and increase capacity to affect positive change
- By providing regular forums for the community to express their views and be heard by others – because many people in the local community feel disempowered and not listen to, by people in power, and they need to know they are valued (by God)
- By encouraging volunteering and opportunities for the local community to participate in activities that promote cohesion – because residents need a chance to give something back to the community and/ or make a difference to the people around them. Furthermore, opportunities are needed to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Pathways are required to help local young people boost their employability, learn new skills and become positive contributors towards their community.
- By providing a framework for volunteering and championing those who want to serve others in the community - because for an increasing number volunteering is a way to express their worship.
- By working with partner organizations and volunteers to encourage giving, the sharing of resources and the redistribution of wealth - because it is through these macro chances that structural poverty can challenged.
