ABM places a high value on the quality and longevity of the impacts of its community development work. That is one reason we are so strongly supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (pictured above). Each of our Community Development projects helps to contribute to one or more of these goals, known as the SDGs.
The work of this General Community Development Fund focusses on Goal #17, Partnerships for the Goals. Working in partnerships makes it possible to achieve all the other Sustainable Development Goals.
This year we aim to undertake 2 project evaluations, support 2 ecumenical disaster preparedness and response networks, and fund 2 meetings with Pacific Anglican Alliance Partners to further the advocacy work of the Anglican Communion.
The General Community Development Fund helps ABM to fund our community development work that cannot be neatly packaged as a “project”. It includes the following activities:
If you have ever wondered how organisations like ABM ensure that the money they raise from the public and spend with overseas partners on community projects and disaster response is spent wisely....
If you have ever wanted to see a small donation make a real difference by joining it to many other small donations, through large ecumenical responses to disasters.....
If you have ever wanted the voice of the Anglican churches in our Pacific region to be heard on the world stage...
... then please consider supporting this vital fund.
XG011ZD needs $129,242 in 2019 (tax-deductible)
