with guest speaker Jedd Schroy from Paradigm Shift
A handout might enable the poor to survive one more day, but can they be given tools to escape poverty for good? Paradigm Shift is a ministry equipping South African churches by training them to provide business training, micro loans, mentoring and discipleship to the urban poor as an ongoing church-based outreach. By empowering South African churches to provide the poor in their communities with economic development and discipleship, the Paradigm Shift programme equips South African church volunteers to provide long-term solutions to the poverty around them.
