The past week has been a whirlwind. Yes it has been windy, we had cyclone #Angus come through here along the North Sea, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
ICA Winds & Waves, April 2015. A certificate issued in 1976 to a villager who had completed the ICA’s eight-week training course. He had kept it safe and showed it to us when we visited him this year.
This all started with the ‘On Integrity’ statement that has inspired me for years. I wanted to know where that statement came from and I landed in the Maliwada story. As I dug further into the Maliwada story, I found a more recent report “Maliwada’s Grandchildren“* and learned that the Institute of Cultural Affairs was founded based on the vision of Joe (Joseph Wesley Mathews). They have created many a village and continue with their efforts today.
Tonight I’ll Skype with the past president of ICA, Nelson Stover, who wrote the report.
Tim, where is that horse?
*Maliwada’s Grandchildren: Reinvigorating a Commitment to Care in the 21st Century
In 1975, Joseph Wesley Mathews laid out a vision of a Band of 24 Human Development Projects, one in every time zone. These projects were intended show that every human being on the Planet had the potential to live a full and productive life. In 2009, people who saw that vision continue to embrace its potential and are reshaping the way in becomes manifest in the 21st Century. This paper relates a part of their story.
