For more than 35 years, Scarborough Congregation has been a supporter of World Accord.
As part of our Disciple's Generous Response (offertory), people attending our Sunday services are invited to contribute loose pocket change to our “Change for Change” fund to support World Accord programs throughout the world. In addition, special fund-raisers (such as the CEM Fastathon) and funding drives for specific programs or emergency aid support occur during the year.
World Accord is actively involved in sponsoring highly successful international development projects and programs located in Latin America and Asia. World Accord’s philosophy of empowering people at the local level means that, rather than simply sending money or sending our people to work in the field, they take a different approach based on the principles of partnership — World Accord is successful because they partner with established local organizations already working effectively at the grass roots level in their program countries.
