"Published by The Anglican Church of Canada Social Action Unit".
"At the General Synod held in Niagara Falls in January of 1971, the Anglican Church considered ways of expressing some concern about racism throughout the world, and its evil effects upon mankind. South Africa was chosen as a specific focus for this widespread problem .... This resource booklet is an attempt to provide interested church people with additional information on the South African situation today. Much of its is in the words of South Africans. Much of it contains the challenge about racism given to us by the World Council of Churches. All of it can help us to be more realistic about being `the Church in the World'." -- Intro., p. 2.

Notes
A reflection on her work by the author as she retires after a long career as Africa Development Co-ordinator for the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. "In 24 years of travelling in sub-Saharan Africa I have experiences nothing but civility and generosity from Africans". She talks about "The underlying premise of PWRDF's mission in development is that people can change. .... What I have been doing for many years is encouraging people to be future-oriented, to take risks, to challenge the status quo -- all this in Africa where Africans have a long view back over time and the future is viewed in a short-term framework. There is a dilemma that development activist like myself face constantly : we are asking people who live on the narrowest margin of survival to take risks where the only certainty is an unpredictable future". Similarly, donors must also learn to take the long view and make a long term commitment. "[P]reoccupations with concrete and preferably short-term physical results easily ignore the dynamics and human change processes that are essential for long-term sustainable development. It also ignores the fact that changes in social, political and economic structures may be needed to remove barriers to perpetual poverty and oppression. As PWRDF, we have to persuade our supporters to stay with us for many years, to see grants going to things like `capacity building', agriculture and health clinics, gender training, women's income generating projects ... for campaigns in challenging the systems and powers obstructing change".
