For us at Festival of Life, our Corporate Social Responsibility is something we take not just seriously, but dearly. We work to bring hope to millions of people in the world’s poorest communities. Our inspiration is drawn from the unconditional love of Christ.
We acknowledge one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that God’s love, mercy and grace are made known and available to all people.
As Jesus identified with the poor, the afflicted, the oppressed and the marginalised, we believe that we are called to serve those in need, to improve and alleviate poverty and play a role in transforming communities. We believe that God created and loves everyone and we also endeavour to love as Christ loves.
To help achieve this, we believe our five focus areas will help in achieving the mandate.
‘’Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around’’.
Our Inspiring Future Generation (IFG) programme partners with a charity organisation that identifies impoverished children in slum communities and finds sponsors to cater for their educational needs. In the past three years, we have ‘adopted’ 10 children from Ghana and 10 from Brazil respectively.
Festival of Life is happy to announce our project in Malawi
Our quest for community development has also birthed the Health Advocacy Project in Malawi, which is ongoing. Our aim in partnership with Africa Missions is to build an ultra-modern healthcare and maternity centre in Chalendewa village Malawi.
SCHOOL ADOPTION PROJECT
Festival of Life is embarking on the School Adoption Project as part of our Inspiring Future Generations (IFG) initiative. We would like to raise funds towards this venture.
The School Adoption Project will help provide children in developing countries access to quality primary education. It will do this by ensuring the right infrastructure is in place, building sanitary solution (toilets/ boreholes), supplying books and providing teacher training where necessary.
We believe that good education is instrumental in transforming the lives of vulnerable children and young people in developing communities around the world and every child has a right to quality education.
Our vision is to provide children with access to quality education as a tool to break the cycle of poverty in the society.
Our Healthcare project in Chalendewa, Malawi will also benefit from funds raised.
Virgin Sport and ASICS are teaming up and returning to central London this summer with a brand-new look for the ultimate street party on the 21st of July, 2019. Everything you loved about the British 10k: live bands and DJ’s motivating you at every kilometre, cheering fans and fan hubs are back, with a few surprises up our sleeve.
Festival of Life will be participating in this run to raise funds for the School Adoption Project in developing countries.
