Journeying together

Jackie Macadam examines three of the six new projects adopted by the Guild in their latest three year partnership.

COVER

Journeying Together – Empowering Teenage Mothers

EVERY three years the Church of Scotland Guild selects six projects to support, both prayerfully and inancially.

Relecting the national strategy, ‘One Journey, Many Roads’, the new projects for the years 2018 to 2021 have been selected to encompass efforts being made at home in Scotland and across the world.

Three projects from overseas and three home-based ones have been selected.

The projects from abroad are Seema’s Project from India, ensuring that the children of sex workers are cared for; Malawi Fruits where young farmers are helped to develop more sustainable farming and use solar powered water pumps; and in partnership with the World Mission Council, Journeying Together, a project designed to help teenage mothers in Zambia to gain education and training.

The ‘home’ based projects selected for the next three years support are Join Up The Dots from CrossReach, the Boys’ Brigade’s Faith In Young People, and A Chaplain For Our Ports run by the Sailor’s Society.

“The final choices reflect a desire to have a range of ‘client groups’, a range of locations at home and abroad and partnerships that don’t replicate too closely things we have done in the past”, says Iain Whyte, General Secretary of the Guild.
