Addressing Causes of Migration: August 11 

July 31, 2019

Cherry Marcelo, who oversees World Vision’s Faith and Development programs in Central America and other areas, will address root causes of migration and describe current interventions during the Faith Formation hour on Sunday, August 11. Her experiences in faith-based partnerships, child protection, and strategy will bring a unique perspective to our ideas about immigration. Learn how faith communities and other groups are working together, especially in Honduras and El Salvador, to bring hope and opportunities to children and families. What happens to people, especially youth, who are deported or denied asylum in the US and must return to their home countries? How does World Vision choose which communities to work with? What does their research show about the effectiveness of their interventions? What can Plymouth and other faith communities learn from this model?

Ms. Marcelo’s life is steeped in faith — as a sponsored child in the Philippines at the age of 6, as she earned her social work degree, and in her work as trainer, writer, and researcher for World Vision.

Please join Plymouth’s Immigration Ministry team on August 11 from Noon -1:15 in Hildebrand Hall to be part of this important discussion. All ages are welcome. A light lunch will be served.
