Grassroots Approach Programs
Grassroots Approach program is a holistic, practical, relevant wellbeing program that addresses the major issues in our society from grass-root level.
How often is it said ‘In schools they teach us the ABC’s and the 123’s but no-one taught us about relationships’ It is often said by those who are going through a break-up or divorce not knowing how a relationship that started with two people in love could end up this way.
The education system aims to teach us how to be successful in our career however success in career doesn’t always equate to success in marriage. Some of the most successful business leaders in the World are struggling in their marriages. And learning respect and communication skills simply don’t go far enough to help couples in their relationship for when things get more difficult.
This program is about addressing the issue of rising divorce at grass-root level. High divorce rate and dysfunctional relationships are major causes of mental illness, alcohol and drug addiction, isolation, homelessness and depression. Homelessness often derives from the breaking down of the family relationships as the family support which should be there is no longer available. For many people divorce is a path to poverty as legal expenses and the cost of running two households bight into limited family incomes.
With increasing rates of divorce and lack of understanding the program provides knowledge, skills and understanding of responsibilities in having a successful lifelong relationships.
The program includes both the psychological perspective of human relations and Christ centred relational skills for healthy relationships. Our aim is to teach practical skills for building healthier lifelong relationships particularly within marriage because it is often said, and we believe, the family is the backbone of society.
