Trainer in Community Development and Mission

A local mission organisation in Indonesia, involved in community development projects such as goat husbandry, organic farms and education, is asking for help.

Some projects they are conducting include a village clinic, a Musi floating clinic, a clean water project, compost making, an integrated organic farm, goat breeding and vocational training.

Trainer Requested
They are keen to conduct a special outreach with a people group (10,000) in a remote area and they are asking for the help of a trainer.

Training Subjects
There is flexibility with regard to the timing as this project is still in the developmental phase.

The organizer would like someone to come who has had some experience in community empowerment schemes and a person who can talk with local church people about community development as a gift in itself and as an expression of the gospel and the mission of the church.

Broadcasting
Please pass this message to people who could be involved in fulfilling this request. I can share more details and connect you with a representative from this Indonesian organization.
