Matthew 5:38 Exodus 21:24; Lev. 24:20; Deut. 19:21”
Luke 12:47-49 New International Version (NIV)
47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
Not Peace but Division
49 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [money]." - Luke 16:13

“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.”
- Lord Acton
The Concern: a Lack Of World Peace.
We need an Emphasis on Climate Justice Peacebuilding.
Limited job training opportunities and lack of resources for business start-ups have been major barriers to youth, women and men moving forward in their lives and educating and feeding their children.
Low job skills and lack of capacity to make a living also impact public health in serious ways. Mental health and physical health are intrinsically linked.
Current Economic Self-Sufficiency Program
Project: WE EMPOWER PROJECT (WEP) Economic Self-Sufficiency Programs address training and support of business start-ups for both Youth and Women with a special focus on women, who have less opportunity and greater obstacles to overcome.

”Agroecological Sustainable Farming - Natural Resources Management”
- Food Security, Fresh Water Security for Families and Farms, Good Shelters, Medicine, and Education are our current priorities.
- Multicultural Food Forest Community Arts & Sports & Science & Culinary/Farming Village Centers as Sanctuaries of Love and Learning that teach a holistic agricultural-fundamental, nurturing form of teaching and learning.
- Conservation Education through Makerspace Virtual Reality and libraries for All Generations.
- Schools that Teach Natural Farming & Permaculture and Save Seeds (act as Seed Banks), inspired by Nomvula the Greeninglady.
Check out the Potlatch we just helped host in Sierra Leone!
We’re in need of money, of course, because we live in a Capitalistic society and we want to do work now instead of making excuses not to. However, we believe in Mutual Aid: so please join our Facebook Group, which is something of a big Study Buddy Group that Shares and Helps One Another, regardless of your personal income. We don’t care about money - we just need it to help people in the society we live in. So, if that sounds like fun, please come and join us. :) <3
Also, study Mammon.
We are inspired by Indigenous artists at If Not Us, Then Who? and One Heart + One Spirit
We are inspired by Indigenous Ways of Being such as Dadirri

Our Project: “Permaculture Sports Design” [working out the details & study resources] - I’ve found a lot of Golf Resort (read: elitist) permaculture course design, but nothing for underprivileged communities yet, which is my priority. I plan to see if I can get professional eco-friendly sports teams to get involved in this new movement of Eco-Sports Permaculture Design as well.
Our Project: “Healing the City vs. Rural Divide” - Intellectual Elitism and Miscommunication has led to a crisis of Democracy between our family and friends and cherished ones. We must heal this.
