Championing community-led health & happiness

We are a growing network, an emerging movement, a group of people determined to make a difference to the world’s most vulnerable communities.

We are people from many countries and backgrounds. We are motivated in different ways - by faith in God, by humanitarian ideals or a love for people and the planet.

But we all want to bring about change in our communities – not by throwing lots of money and resources at problems, but by connecting people together; by celebrating transformational gifts and skills; by working together and developing deep trust; by agreeing about the barriers to health, wellbeing and happiness in our neighbourhoods; and together creating solutions to overcome them. Join us today.

Gwembe: Returning to the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’

  In this week’s blog, CHGN’s co-leader Elizabeth reports back on what our Zambia Cluster in Gwembe have been up to lately.
