Workshops at Cornerstone Church
Next Saturday, 19 January, Paradigm Shift will be at Cornerstone Church Bedfordview with subsequent workshops following on 26 January and 9 February. You may remember Jeff Schroy from Paradigm Shift‘s talk at an Exchange breakfast in October last year (click here for more on that event).
Paradigm Shift trains churches in providing effective, long-term solutions to the poor in their communities. The programme specifically targets entrepreneurs who are making about R150 a day and provides them with business training, microloans, mentoring and discipleship.
“The programme targets individuals who turn to entrepreneurship as a way out of poverty. It aims to help these entrepreneurs grow their businesses beyond subsistence,” says Paradigm Shift‘s website.
This first workshop is a great opportunity for those who can benefit from the programme and / or those who want to help train the poor in running succcessful businesses.
It’s an open event so feel free to extend invitations to anyone you feel may be interested.
