New Partnership Projects Unveiled by Church of Scotland Guild

Friday April 24

SIX new partner projects – including one dealing with female genital mutilation in Kenya – are set to benefit from a three-year partnership project with the Church of Scotland Guild.

The new set of project partners are:

  • Street Pastors (500 of them operate in 20 towns and cities across Scotland providing care on the nighttime streets principally at weekends)
  • Care for the Family (working with those facing family difficulties)
  • a Christian Aid project in Bolivia (caring for the environment and seeking to educate about climate change)
  • Mission International’s Haiti Project (working in one of the poorest countries in the world)
  • a Feed the Minds project against female genital mutilation in Kenya (tackling complex cultural and social problems)
  • Prospects, an organisation which supports people with learning disabilities in churches.

Previous partnerships have raised substantial six-figure sums for the projects supported by the Guild during the three-year initiatives.

Announcing the projects for 2015 to 2018 under the theme of ‘Be bold, be strong!, Guild General-Secretary Iain Whyte said: “These wide-ranging project will allow the Guild to reflect on inclusion, poverty, gender inequality, climate change, relationships and pastoral issues.”
