[Anglican Board of Mission – Australia] For the past 5 weeks, Anglican development workers from Myanmar, the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea have been learning together about effective community development from their colleagues in the Philippines.

The E-CARE (Episcopal Community Action for Renewal and Empowerment) Foundation conducted this training with the support of Anglican Board of Mission – Australia (ABM) and other Anglican development agencies. Topics covered included Assets Based Community Development (ABCD), gender equality, project management and disaster preparedness and response.

They also had opportunities to visit local communities and parishes of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines (ECP) and saw some of the outcomes of the ABCD approach and Receivers to Givers Policy that E-CARE have recently developed.

The participants have now returned to their home countries to put their learning into practice. ABM will continue to support these exciting training opportunities.
