The California-Nevada Annual Conference is proud to be sponsoring a 10-Fold Day this year – a day that illustrates the Conference's commitment to human rights in the Philippines.
10-Fold is a 10-day online event that begins on Monday (Oct. 10), coordinated by the General Board of Global Ministries and United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to mobilize passionate people to stand up and be counted for causes in which they believe.
All it takes is a click of a mouse to trigger a donation from the sponsor of the day's event. (You might say that 10-Fold gives people an opportunity to "put their mouse where their mouth is"!)
Cal-Nevada is the sponsor for Day 9, Tuesday, Oct. 18, in support of Advance # 3021302, Comprehensive Community Development Project for Dumagat Communities. This Philippines Ministry with the Poor Model Project aims to improve livelihoods through human rights. Its mission is to contribute to the process of community empowerment and self-determination, by strengthening relationships/mutuality with communities affected by the Laiban Dam, through training opportunities in agriculture, education and health.
