“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
At the heart of our work is service to others in an efforts to advance the common good of humanity. At the very core of the Fields of Growth mission is the desire to serve and uplift in a spirit of human solidarity. We strive to do all our service as a Family of Friends on a Mission of Accompaniment with community partners. So whether it be with our staff at the HOPEFUL school in Uganda or our partners at the St. Patrick’s Foundation in Jamaica, we aim to walk hand in hand with the communities we serve.
We couple the word service with the words Mission of Accompaniment and solidarity because the word service can sometimes be communicate the wrong message – one of superiority. In an interdependent world we know that we when we are in service to others, we are very consciously in service to ourselves. Ubuntu - “I am because of who we all are.”
