The Leadership and Board of Directors of HOPE worldwide Canada would like to invite our partners, supporters and volunteers to Toronto, Ontario this coming July to join us for our Canadian Workshop and Annual General Meeting!
This is a registered event (limited space available – register below!) workshop conducted by Terri Loso, Senior Director of US Programs, followed by a luncheon and our Annual General Meeting for HOPE worldwide Canada
Terri Loso, Senior Director of US Programs
Terri is privileged to oversee HOPE worldwide’s volunteer engagement work in the US and liaison with the amazing service-leaders in Canada and the Caribbean. She strives to be a sheep, not a goat, and to influence and support her brothers and sisters in Christ to the same end. She is a member of the Pioneer Valley Church of Christ in Springfield, MA and lives in Northern Connecticut with her very patient husband, Darren.
Our session will include paradigm-changing discussion on addressing the root causes of poverty with respect, humility and lasting impact, practical application of concepts to common programs and outreach and building mutual, respectful relationships across socio-economic lines. Participants will review a new definition of poverty and poverty alleviation and address the potential damage caused by paternalism, a material definition of poverty and one-way giving. They will also brainstorm how to apply these concepts to existing outreach and how to build mutual, respectful relationships across socio-economic lines.
