“Let’s come together with One Heart, One People, One Nation and as One Body of Christ, to Pray for Malaysia”


Caritas Malaysia is organising a six-month online Community Development course to build the capacity  of staff, volunteers, parish coordinators and  local community leaders in Integral Human Development work. The practice of community-based development is gaining traction  globally as it engages the people to participate, share their gifts and resources, as well  as take responsibility for the improvement of  their lives and communities.


The course is designed as a hands-on  programme to build the capacity of Caritas  heads, staff, volunteers, centres, parish coordinators, and local community leaders.  It draws its inspiration from the work done  by Caritas in various countries in the region  as well the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC) documents calling for ‘a  new way of being Church in Asia’, one that  is participatory, prophetic, communitarian  and dialoguing.
