Balancing in the Face of the COVID-19 Crisis: Adapting and Reimagining Faith-Inspired Programs

June 2, 2020
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

The COVID-19 emergency is disrupting the ongoing strategies and programs of leading international faith-inspired organizations. Many are responding directly to varying dimensions of the COVID-19 emergency while at the same time maintaining their focus on critical development priorities. This webinar focused on how pandemic challenges are seen across Asia-Pacific countries. What are the new programs and processes that respond to the current crisis? How are continuing programs faring? Has the promised effort to reimagine a post-COVID-19 world begun?

In this conversation, four leaders of faith-inspired development organizations reflected on specific experiences, focusing on the particularly faith-inspired pieces of their work (for example, mobilization of faith communities for crisis response). This added important perspectives to the Religious Responses to COVID-19 series, which has been examining religious adaptation to COVID-19 since early March. Dr. Olivia Wilkinson, director of research at the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities and a co-organizer of the project, moderated the discussion.
