FJN'S LDC / 3-LEGS STRATEGY OFFERS A VALUABLE, PROVEN SOLUTION

The  Father Joseph Network's commitment to increase collaboration among

Fonkoze, University of Fondwa, APF/Raising Haiti, and Sisters of St. Anthony of Fonda, can make the SDGs come to fruition.


FJN is executing a 3-LEGS/LDC strategy consistent with the Business & Sustainable Development Commission framework and the strategies identified by the late C. K. Prahalad in his book,

"The Fortune At The Bottom Of The Pyramid, Eradicating Poverty Through Profits."

3 LEGS STRATEGY CAN HELP FULFILL THE SDGS

The Three Legs initiative is the next stage in the evolution of the work of Father Joseph Philippe to uplift his fellow Haitians through the creation of wealth in rural Haiti.  “Think of a stool”. That’s the metaphor that Father Joseph uses to explain what it will take to generate wealth within Haiti’s 570 farm-based communities which comprise 75% of the country’s population. “A stool cannot stand upright if all three of its legs are not solid and strong”.

NGOs, Corporations And Institutions Can Harness FJN's 3-Legs Strategy To Fulfill The UN SDGs.

FJN's 3-Legs Strategy Is Consistent With The BSDC Framework That The World-Renown Economist C.K. Prahalad Identified As A Beneficial Strategy For Eradicating Poverty And Enabling Societal Benefits:

"The Fortune At The Bottom Of The Pyramid -- Eradicating Poverty Through Profits."


"Prospective rewards include growth, profits, and incalculable contributions to humankind… investment at 'the bottom of the pyramid' means lifting billions of people out of poverty and desperation, averting the social decay, political chaos, terrorism, and environmental meltdown that is certain to continue if the gap between rich and poor countries continues to widen.”  C. K. Prahalad


The Christian Community Is Called To Fulfill The SDGs

And Can Help Lead The Effort With The Father Joseph Network

From a Christian faith perspective, more needs to be done to support the pursuit of the UN Sustainable Development Goals -- 17 Goals To Transform Our World -- including eradicating poverty, eliminating hunger,

enabling wellbeing and more, by 2030.


When Pope Francis said in his first Palm Sunday Homily, "With Christ, we can transform ourselves and the world," the Pope set the stage for fulfilling the UN SDGs. 


And since their inception in 2015, Pope Francis has been a vocal advocate of key aspects of the transformative UN SDGs.


Indeed, working to transform the world is a key to Church teaching.


Scripture teaches us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the sick, give water to those who thirst and more.


The USCCB Document On The Laity teaches us that "All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world.” 


And Catholic Social Justice Teaching, "Walking In The Footsteps of Jesus," encourages us to:

Act (on an issue)... Reflect (on the root cause)... and Transform (the  situation and cause).


Indeed, we, the Body of Christ, are called to lead the fulfillment of the SDGs. 


While the SDGs are challenging, they really are achievable, if we would only make a deeper commitment and align resources.  such as the Father Joseph Network is doing.
