    View the print edition here Celebration of Global Mission Accountability is a much-used word and an important one. We are accountable in so many ways for what we do. Accountable to God, to those we love and to our team members, friends and family. Healthy people welcome accountability and have little to fear from being accountable. It is not so different with ministries like Global Mission Partners. We are accountable and want to be accountable. This needs to happen in several ways. One of the most important relates to our reason to exist. Country Profile: Zimbabwe KCV to Bible College and Back Again! My young sister and I arrived at Khayelihle Children’s Village when I was 13 years old. My parents had passed away (father in 1993 and mother in 2003) and we were living with my Auntie.

    Respecting People and Meeting Their Needs It is important when working with communities experiencing poverty to distinguish between welfare and development. Welfare is meeting someone’s presenting need without addressing the situation that has created that need. For example, we could buy someone a school uniform so they can go to school without asking why they can’t buy a uniform for themselves.
