"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella
The Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) www.crwrc.org is the relief and development arm of the Christian Reformed Church. CRWRC reaches out in God's name to people, both in North America and around the world, who are struggling with poverty, hunger, disaster, and injustice to help them find lasting ways to improve their lives. They have three main ministries: 1) Community development, 2) disaster response and relief, and 3) working with people in North America and around the world to connect, educate and advocate.
In 2005, CRWRC invited Global Learning Partners, (GLP) Inc. to conduct a 4-day training in Dialogue Education™ (DE) for staff and partners… and since that time GLP and CRWRC have had a close relationship. Some of our collaboration includes:
Over the years many CRWRC staff and partners have learned the value of Dialogue Education™ principle and practices in the workplace, in the field, in the organization, and in the world. GLP has assisted in capacity-building in many partners in Africa and Asia, as well as showing North American staff the importance of respect and inclusion in the workplace.
“Dialogue Education and all that we are learning here is so in-line with my faith and world view. It feels so right. Thank you for showing me this is possible.” (course participant)
