Challenge

Today's world urgently needs positive role models - leaders devoted to the greater good of their communities and the world. Frank Buchman inspired thousands to address global challenges through personal reflection and change, yet his work remains largely unknown. This documentary includes unique archival footage and firsthand testimonies of transformation as a result of Buchman's influence. We want to share it with the world.

Solution

Your donations will help us to spread the message of Buchman's unique peace-making approach of transforming society through personal change and reconciliation. Funding will help us to screen the film to audiences both new to and familiar with Buchman's message. We will develop workshops with young people on sustainable peace. With your help we will offer inspiring ideas that can heal an argument, a community or a world by sharing this film with new generations.

Long-Term Impact

There's real power in a documentary film - it transcends culture, generations and countries, setting the viewer on a path towards a broader understanding. Today's global challenges can be overcome if people embrace visions and values which lead to racial reconciliation, economic inclusion, inter-generational & inter-faith understanding. When people change, nations change. You can help promote Frank Buchman's incredible life-story by supporting the UK launch of the documentary in 2018.
