Adopt a Single Parent Printer Friendly Version
Churches are at a loss of how to help the continuing growing numbers of single parents which are increasing on a daily basis. In order to assist single parents, there needs to be education. A seminar could be conducted which would introduce the concept and explain the many needs a single parent encounters. My idea is to have a men's group and women's or youth groups of every participating church "adopt" single parents for one month. The men's group could provide house repair, car repair, and lawn care. The women's group could provide babysitting, meals, budget counseling, groceries, taxi service to job interviews and doctor's appointments. The groups would pool their money together to assist a financial need. The churches would do an asssessment of the volunteers to see where he or she is most useful according to their skills and talents. There would be a coordinator to schedule the volunteers as the needs arise. It would be good if a large number of churches participated at the same time during the month because the needs are so great. If this concept was enacted, welfare and food stamps would be a memory.
Reward: Send me success stories and testimonies!

Twinning Printer Friendly Version
We all have heard about some cities twinning, why not go more further, I propose families twinning. A rich one will be twinned with a poor one. I think this will help solve some inequalities and tie solidarity.

Education for Every Child Printer Friendly Version
People can create a scheme where they can invest money that will be used to educate children till they are 25 years of age. After 25, these (children) should be made compulsory to return money to the scheme in installments with interest. This money will be given back to people in their old age till they die. In this way, we can educate each and every poor child in this world and let not old go hungry any more.
