Right Sharing of World Resources is an independent Quaker not-for-profit organization pursuing the abundance of God's love through wealth redistribution. RSWR funds micro-enterprise projects with marginalized women in Kenya, India, and Sierra Leone.
They enact their beliefs by:
- Making grants to jump-start micro-enterprise ventures for female entrepreneurs in developing countries.
- Offering resource materials for the study of the lives of the poor (project partners), the lives of the comparatively rich, the physical and spiritual meaning of both, and how they can learn from and be enriched by each other.
- Working as members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) with other like-minded people to remind all of us of our responsibility to those less fortunate than theirselves.
God calls people to the right sharing of world resources, from the burdens of materialism and poverty into the abundance of God’s love, to work for equity through partnership with our sisters and brothers throughout the world.
At Right Sharing of World Resources, they are motivated by the facts that at least 20% of the world’s population benefits from more than their share of the world’s resources, and that this inequity is morally wrong. As persons of faith in the Christian tradition, they understand that God calls them to actively work to redress this injustice. They understand this as a call for wealth redistribution, or jubilee justice.
They believe that all people are equally sacred and important in the eyes of God, and that all people have a right to provide for their families and community and to enjoy a flourishing life.
Towards a better balance, the doing of jubilee justice, they have created channels for pro-active economic development with people in parts of the world, who are struggling for basic needs and moving toward becoming financially self-sustaining.
