- What is faith changemaking?
Faith changemakers have been at the forefront of transforming the world for the common good. Globally, throughout history, faith-inspired changemakers have brought fundamental innovations to our world, for the good of all, influencing sectors such as healthcare, hospice, and the food industry or fighting against human trafficking.
In Africa, faith changemakers are providing homes for abused women, taking care of orphans, training adults to read and write and helping the youth make a livelihood from their skills and talents. Faith-inspired changemakers are needed now more than ever; and because most of the faith changemakers do whatever they do as a “call from God,” the need to support their leadership capacity has never been more needed. .
