Newman Centre Catholic Chaplaincy - PovertyCure: Charity that Hurts

Event Date: 
Thursday, November 22, 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join us for part 2 of the 6 part series of PovertyCure.

Register here: https://povcure2.eventbrite.ca

Nearly a billion people around the world live in extreme poverty. The love of God stirs us to help, and yet both private and public aid often goes awry. In this session, several voices from the developing world discuss some common pitfalls of humanitarian assistance, and then point the way toward strategies that connect our good intentions with things that actually work—relationships focused on unleashing the creative capacity of our fellow man, human beings made in the image and likeness of God.

One of PovertyCure’s key themes is the dignity and creative capacity of the human person created in the image of God. Understanding this is the foundation for everything we will explore, and it directly connects with a primary goal of the series—to recover and illuminate the Christian tradition’s rich treasury of resources for helping the
poor thrive.

We explore the moral, theological, and economic foundations that allow people to create prosperity and get out of poverty, and do so in clear terms illustrated with stories by and about people who live and work in some of the world’s poorest regions.

The goal throughout is to develop both hearts and minds for the poor
