3. THRIVE WORLDWIDE
I hope you're staying safe during these unprecedented and uncertain times.
Our team is doing well. In fact, we're busy exploring creative ways to support you and your organisation to be healthy, resilient and connected until things can return to normal.
From its inception, Thrive has specialised in remote working. And this has two implications for us now.
Firstly, I'm pleased to say that most of our services are continuing as normal. And secondly, it means that we're well placed to help you if you're looking to transition to remote working.
With this in mind, here are four changes at Thrive to tell you about:
- We've created resources and services to help you in your response to Covid-19. Find them below - and more will come.
- We're also creating guides to remote working. Keep an eye on our website for these, or email me if you'd like to discuss one-on-one support.
- We're pausing face-to-face occupational health & psychosocial services. You can still book online or telephone appointments of course.
- We ask that you only book face-to-face medical and travel health appointments if it is urgent. We will continue to review this.
Stay safe and healthy.
CEO, Thrive Worldwide

4. DIDASKO ACADEMY: FREE ONLINE FUNDRAISING COURSE
Didasko Academy offers a free online course to help missionaries with their fundraising efforts.
The vast majority of missionaries are responsible for raising their own support. Most find this process challenging, and some struggle with issues like finding the balance between having faith and asking for money. Some just don't know where to start.
This Personal Fundraising for Missionaries course addresses the obstacles and challenges of fundraising, what the Bible says about it, the principles and fruitful practices of fundraising and practical tips and ideas. The course is self-paced and consists of video mini-lectures, quizzes, reflection questions and online discussion forums. The course also provides spreadsheet templates such as a multi-currency budget spreadsheet and appointment planner.
The course takes 6-12 hours to complete.
All Didasko Academy courses can be accessed free of charge from the website at https://www.dasko.org
