In thinking about material poverty, it’s essential to consider what the foundations for human flourishing are. How does our view of the human person, theology, economics, and government affect our approach to material poverty? How should we view these topics?
Once that intellectual foundation is set, what actions should we take to effectively battle poverty? Enterprise and trade have been the normative methods by which people have risen out of poverty. Why is it important that nonprofits embrace entrepreneurship & business in order to serve the material poor in a sustainable, dignity-affirming manner?
Please join other members of the Accord Network for a conference that seeks to answer these questions. Through various presentations and extensive discussion, attendees will learn what foundations are necessary for human flourishing and be exposed to concepts that best harness the creative capacity and potential of the people they seek to serve.
NOTE: Only applicants from organizations that belong to the Accord Network will receive consideration. Accepted applicants will have all of their conference material expenses and lodging covered.
