Save the date Wednesday October 9th, 2019 for the Golden Harvest Fun-raiser with our very special guest of honour, Father Charles Odaga of Joy Village in Nigeria. Join us as we gather to complete the cycle this harvest season by planting seeds of peace, health, and happiness around the world. All proceeds will go to Father Charles’ Joy Village. Joy Village is a registered charity SSAI, and represents an ideal of human community centered on awakening the inherent capacity within each one of us to love and be loved.
More details to come!
More about Father Charles’ work in Nigeria:
The first Joy Village is situated in Ebe county, Enugu, an extremely poor and drought-stricken region. Over the last nine years SSAI has begun to dramatically transform the communities of the surrounding area which for generations have been plagued by poverty, ill-health and low aspirations through it’s triple care mandate: Educare, Medicare, Sociocare.
The first human-values based school built in Joy Village is The Embodiments of Love Academy and now serves 1100 students. The essence of their education is development of human excellence in five domains: spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and environmental. A free hospital is now running in the community and focuses on bringing heart into healing. The Liquid Love water project, Come and Eat food program, and Heart of Love Children’s Home address the practical needs of the village with input and involvement of the villagers giving everyone the opportunity to care for each other and to create caring communities.
