Update on Ann Riggs’ Work in Kenya, Appeal for Funds

Share

Update:  Georgia Fuller’s slideshow now available here.  PowerPoint  PDF

At our recent Quarterly Meeting, Annapolis Friends made an appeal for funds to support Ann Riggs’ ministry.  To provide additional background on that appeal, below is a piece written by Georgia Fuller of Langley Hill Friends Meeting, who has visited Friends Theological College and taught courses there.  Georgia’s piece highlights many aspects of Ann’s work that you might not think about in connection with training pastors at a theological college, like the Alternatives to Violence Project, peacemaking especially relating to election violence, promoting and providing clean water, sustainable agriculture, supporting micro-enterprises, and more.

Also, to see Ann’s regular reports on her work, see http://fum.org/category/resources/directories/field-staff/ann-riggs/
