Ecumenical Assistance Program
The WSCF Inter-Regional Office administers project grants to national Student Christian Movements through its Ecumenical Assistance Programme (EAP).
Originally set up after the Second World War, the EAP was designed to give concrete and practical support to Student Christian Movements as they built up their local and national work. The EAP is an instrument through which partner groups, churches and agencies can contribute to the movement building and activities of Student Christian Movements around the world.
- Supports projects aimed at movement building and development in areas of: empowerment of peoples, skills development, education and information exchange;
- Encourages projects promoting gender justice and partnership between women and men;
- Nurtures movements discovering and exploring ways to alleviate poverty within different contexts and regions.
- Demonstrate the Christian faith in activities which engage people of marginalised groups in dialogue (such as minority religious or ethnic groups), looking for ways to communicate differences and similarities;
- Assists projects promoting ecumenical sharing of resources and solidarity among WSCF member movements – through the exchange of experiences, personnel or though inter/intra regional encounters.
