Video: A Hope That Saves in Rwanda
Faith. Prosperity. Microfinance. Evangelism. Collective Renewal. How are all these things connected in a virtuous cycle?
Our Video of the Week is from HOPE International, a Canadian international development agency, and tells the story of their small savings circle program which builds communities around spiritual and material sustenance.
One of the many after-effects of the horrific Rwandan genocide was, reportedly, a loss of trust in the Church. However, a partnership between HOPE International and the Church has provided much-needed financial support and helped the community recover from the violence.
Have you seen other examples of religious institutions partnering with external organizations to provide financial support? What do you think of this model?
