About this course
As we work to respond to poverty, we often ask, 'What does it mean for someone to live well and flourish? And how do we measure that transformative impact?'
In this course, you will learn about Tearfund’s Light Wheel framework, which helps us to understand and measure individual and community well-being. It will take you on a journey around the world to explore the Light Wheel’s nine aspects of well-being and see how they could be applied to your context.
What does this course include?
- Biblical reflection on what it means to live ‘life to the full’ (John 10:10) and the broken relationships that can prevent this.
- Animated case studies from around the world to explore the nine aspects of well-being in more depth.
- Practical examples to give you inspiration of how to apply the Light Wheel and measure whole-life transformation in your work.
