I read the following post by Wendy Hammond on the CRC Network blog about an online training opportunity. I’m re-posting it here in an attempt to make folks aware of an important learning opportunity for anyone who works with and/or truly cares about people in poverty.
“How we engage in poverty alleviation is just as important as what we do”
Join World Renew for our inaugural online course! Beginning on July 7, you are invited to explore how to alleviate poverty without hurting the poor and yourself, based on When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.
Find guidance and delve into group discussion about how to engage the poor in sustainable solutions to poverty…
1. What really is poverty and how can we truly combat it?
2. What can I do to help the poor?
3. Where do I begin?
4. How can I engage my church and my community in doing Christ’s work without doing harm to the poor?
Over six sessions, you will apply the principles from the book by watching an accompanying video and participating in an online forum discussion. You are welcome to go at your own pace.
