The first quarter profiles the work of SOLS 24/7 with GULL in East Timor and Cambodia and the church and community mobilization process (CCMP) with GULL in central Nigeria. Established in 2000, SOLS 24/7 has worked with some 90,000 young adults in seven South East Asian countries. The Plateau State, central Nigeria is currently experiencing intercommunal conflict arising from land, power and resource disputes. Given this scenario and and high levels of ethnic and religious tension, CCMP is beginning to make a difference.
El Shaddai Ministries, a Guatemala City church with 12,000 + members hosted the inaugural GULL workshop. The event was attended by participants from churches and local, national and international non-government organizations. Participants from eight organizations agreed to join a GULL pilot programme with the aim of establishing GULL Guatemala. A key focus will be to assist young adults by providing GULL pathways in preparation for employment – or self employment with mentor support. | 24 Oct, 2012
