Advocacy and Subsidiarity: Radical Empowerment

Sunday, Apr 17, 2016, 4:00 pm

Advocacy is often understood as raising a voice on behalf of others, but by integrating the values of subsidiarity into advocacy we can empower others to be agents of transformation for their own communities. Water With Blessings integrates subsidiarity, solidarity, sustainability and spirituality into a distinctive model for global water solutions, in which women are empowered as leaders, and mothers are raised up as advocates and agents for compassion and clean water. In this workshop, participants will encounter the key precepts of Water With Blessings, and be led to creative consideration of how the WWB model might inform other aid intervention programs for similar outcomes.
