“Tell Ten” is CJI’s Giving Tuesday campaign for 2017. It is aimed at spreading the word about support for livelihoods and how livelihoods are a preferential option for the poor with a focus on justice and human dignity.
You can help us Tell Ten about the importance of supporting projects that enhance livelihoods, from skills training and informal education to micro-credit programs and income-generating initiatives.
We are profiling three projects that work to enhance self-reliance and support livelihoods. Help us spread the word by attending one of our events with a friend, donating to raise $60,000 for our projects, or telling your friends and family about why you support CJI.
The projects we are raising awareness and funds for are:
- Human Life Development and Research Centre, India – The Human Life Development and Research Centre (HLDRC) is a project of the Jesuits in Darjeeling, India. It accompanies workers both on functioning tea plantations and in so-called closed gardens, which are plantations that have been abandoned due to financial or other problems, leaving workers without livelihoods or income.
- Kasisi Agricultural and Training Centre, Zambia – The Kasisi Agricultural Training Centre (KATC) is a leading centre in Zambia, training small-scale farmers in organic, sustainable farming. At KATC, local farmers learn how to employ a combination of indigenous knowledge and new technologies to produce more food.
- Comparte, Latin America – Comparte (“to share”) is a community of learning and action comprised of over 16 social organizations across Latin America. Comparte works with marginalized communities across Latin America and seeks to accompany and empower through the promotion of alternative economic models.
