Meetings

The CHGN UKC has regular Linking2Learn meetings twice per year where member programs gather together for fellowship, training and health updates. These meetings are central to our program and provide an opportunity for networking and encouragement as well as learning together. See the links for reviews of our meetings together.


Linking2Learn Meeting November 2017


CHGN has been successful in applying for a grant from Anglican Overseas Aid, and has launched a new livelihoods program for people with disability. The training focused on identifying opportunities for people with disability to gain skills, namely in agriculture, that will enable them to earn an income from selling their produce (or reduce their expenses on fresh produce). A number of CHGN organisations sent their staff to the Linking2learn training in November 2016. A number experts in agriculture and horticulture trained us on how we could include people with disabilities and promote livelihood options.

Linking2Learn Meeting February 2016 - 'Palliative Care'


Report on Homebased Palliative Care Training. A three day training program on Home-based palliative care organised by CHGN Uttarakhand Cluster was held at Himalayan Torchbearers from 16th February to 18th February 2017. Around 30 participants representing cluster partners attended the three day course. In the inaugural session, the cluster leaders spoke briefly about the functioning, funding and beneficiaries of different projects under the cluster partnership. The initial training session by Dr Stanley Macaden from CMAI was about the importance of dying with dignity and hope. Dr Stanley made the group understand the feelings of the dying person with different thought provoking questions helping them step into the shoes of a dying person. The need for holistic care in the palliative care setting was clarified with biblical examples. Second day's sessions by Jenika were practical oriented using small group discussions on how to meet the physical needs of the dying. The case studies about pain management, management of disturbed and agitated behaviour and the role play on communication skills helped the participants to handle these situations by themselves in the community setting. On day 3, Dr. Stanley helped to break the barrier of a purely secular approach to client care by referring to his experiences of showing the love of Christ to a dying person. The classes on bereavement care touched the need for extending the palliative care services to the grieving family. At the end, the participants developed an action plan to move forward with the lessons learned from the three day training. In short, the three day training, I believe, has empowered each participant to be a light to those who are dying.
