Most churches have resources. For example, a large number of Church buildings stand empty for 90% of the week. They could be used as skills and training centers or house small businesses like sewing cooperatives. And every Sunday an enormous reservoir of talent and skills can be found in the pews. Many have the time and ability to get involved in assisting the unemployed and poor to equip themselves for that promised better life.
There are many examples of successful and readily available courses being offered by churches and NGOs, such as ABCD, Siya Sebenza, Isivuno and Farming God’s Way.
But, we need more. The Ikhala Trust and the NM Bay Church Leaders are organizing a “follow up” unemployment and poverty workshop at the South End Museum on Thursday, 17 May 2018.
The objectives are to obtain feedback from current participants and motivate other like-minded people, in every municipal ward in our metro, to connect and network in order to make a difference in the lives of the unemployed and poor in the Metro.
We invite interested individuals or groups from churches, business, education, government, the NGO Sector and civil society to join us on 14 February at Southend Museum for a follow-up workshop.
