This holistic vision seeks to teach them to make use of the many local resources available, so that they can maintain their own dignity and become fully functional in supporting their own families, gain fulfilment and contribute positively to the community. We have seen many who have taken up our teaching uplifted in this way.
REAP’s approach is to work alongside the rural poor to counter three of the most common problems that we have identified as facing development in Africa. These are seen as dependency (overcome by teaching and motivating the poor to do something themselves rather than wait for external aid), the challenges of money and materialism (by providing spiritual motivation and encouraging selfless sharing with others) and environmental concerns (to be met by encouraging the preservation of natural resources and the re-use of locally available materials which otherwise would be seen as waste).
REAP has developed a wide range of ideas that can be introduced with little or no cost to the user and cover every aspect of life. These form the core of REAP’s teaching.
