The Village Gathering
At New Thought Classics, we’re dedicated to sharing New Thought teachings in areas where these empowering principles that changed our lives forever can make the greatest impact in the lives of others. A full 10% of all revenue received by New Thought Classics is directly donated to The Village Gathering, a 501(c)3 non-profit that gives visionary Kenyans a hand-up rather than a handout.
For nearly 20 years, The Village Gathering has hand-selected sustainable projects that directly empower rural Kenyans to end the cycle of poverty. We create economic self-sufficiency by spreading New Thought teachings across Kenya – in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Nyahururu, Eldoret, Kitale, Bungoma and Bukoholo.
Our work has included girls’ schools, hospitals, wells, farming, tuition assistance, and peacekeeping, as well as smaller projects with great impact. Think housing stability, personal finance training, transportation assistance and help acquiring nursing licenses and home mortgages. We share principles from every branch of New Thought so Kenyans know they are part of the great Oneness and that they carry within them all that is needed to empower and uplift themselves. We currently are translating Classic New Thought books into Swahili to reach even more people!
We seek out Kenyans with a proven track record of uplifting their community in selfless ways. We visit to understand and vet their accomplishments. We make constructive suggestions, provide some initial support to help them move a piece of their work forward. We listen to what they envision and the “why” behind their vision – and the steps they’ve planned. We help them strategize a clear path forward. It’s never linear. It’s never on a set timetable. It’s always a long game, as they say. Everything we do is governed by the donations we receive. Everything is unfolding in Divine Order. Each and every time. If you’ve ever had anyone give you a hand-up that made a difference in your life, you’ll understand how YOU can be the difference that moves someone out of poverty forever.
If you’d like to help spread New Thought globally among those who are using these principles to transform an entire country, you can read more about our recent work, and our newest projects, by visiting The Village Gathering (please link to the main page).
Be not afraid, my child, but let your world be gently lit by miracles.
