Happy International Women’s Day! And Still She Rises

Read MoreRead More

Dear friends, all of us at the Imago Dei Fund wish you a happy International Women’s Day! The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is one which resonates deeply with us and reflects our core values – #BalanceforBetter.

In honor of International Women’s Day, we invite you to pause and meditate on the universal theme of balance… On a spiritual level, imbalances create harm and disease. Think for a moment of all of the cruel and inhumane gender imbalance which has been crawling out into the light of day… Just for a moment. Today is a day to celebrate where we have made strides forward and resolve to heal and make whole. You can’t heal what is hiding in shame and silence. “A balanced world is a better world.” And ask yourself this question: “How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world?” Read More

Made in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee and filmed in one of the largest refugee camps in the world, Brave Girl Rising tells how a courageous girl, inspired by the magical dreams of her mother and the sisterhood of her friends, succeeds in getting the education she deserves.

Written by poet laureate Warsan Shire and voiced by Tessa Thompson and Golden Globe winner David Oyelowo, this short film is a testament to how hope and love can propel us beyond even the bleakest of circumstances.

Without a doubt, one of the greatest challenges the planet faces today is climate change. Africa is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

According to the United Nations: “ Global warming of 2˚C would put over 50 percent of the continent’s population at risk of undernourishment. Projections estimate that climate change will lead to an equivalent of 2 percent to 4 percent annual loss in GDP in the region by 2040.”

“Some journeys are direct, and some are circuitous; some are heroic, and some are fearful and muddled. But every journey, honestly undertaken, stands a chance of taking us toward the place where our deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.”
