50 Anglican Church Leaders In London To Tap Into Experiences Of Challenging Heights On Human Trafficking
50 senior Anglican Church leaders, and 15 archbishops in London are expected to benefit from the experiences of Challenging Heights, a non-governmental organization based in Ghana.
President of Challenging Height, James Kofi Annan, was invited by the United Society Partners in the Gospel (USPG), London and the Anglican Mission agency to share the complexities in the fight against human trafficking
The USPG, formerly known as the Society for Propagation of the Gospel (SPG), is an Anglican mission agency whose patron is the Archbishop of Canterbury. It was established in 1701 and works with churches and communities worldwide on projects relating to education, development, and justice.
The International Consultation (an event that takes place once every three years) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, will focus on the theme “Set My People Free: The call of the Church against Human Trafficking.”
The letter inviting Challenging Heights states that “the consultation is expected to bring together about 50 senior church leaders from across the world, including about 15 archbishops of the Anglican Church, to explore one of the most pressing challenges of our times—human trafficking.”
According to the society, since they wanted to make the event an opportunity for church leaders to listen and learn from an expert in the field, the CEO of Challenging Heights had been invited to deliver the keynote address at this meeting and speak on the theme “The Role of Faith Leaders in Tackling Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery’.
“What we expect is an input of about 45 minutes on the 30th of January from a group of influential faith leaders exploring human trafficking as an integral aspect of modern-day slavery and the role of faith leaders in engaging with this issue. If you think of any other aspect of human trafficking that might be more relevant for a group like this, please feel free to suggest it,” the letter stated.
Given Mr. Kofi Annan’s experience and knowledge of modern-day slavery and human trafficking, the society says they are hopeful that he will be able to challenge and prepare church leaders to comprehend the complexity and challenges involved in effectively responding to the problem of human trafficking.
