Mobilising Churches for Vulnerable Children and Families

By joining us on Wednesday, April 24th at 3pm (UK), 4pm (CET), 5pm (EET) for this 90-minute online learning session, you will access experience of successful church engagement and mobilisation in eastern Europe, western Europe, and will hear of a new research-based initiative to learn from and engage with church leaders in Albania.
