In addition, we remind you that other materials on Systemic Change are available at this link, in nine different languages.
The International Commission of the Vincentian Family to Promote Systemic Change presents this Manual for your reflection and use.
What we present in this little book, “Manual of Systemic Change” is an understanding of a transformative methodology offered to the Vincentian Family since 2006, for its work for and with the poor.
Its main objective is to give an idea of the content that generally meet most of the requirements of a transformative and efficient manner of working which is aimed at helping people out of poverty.
This “Manual of Systemic Change” consists of seventeen different but interrelated themes, covering the conceptualization of the issues, the systematization of the strategies to follow and finally the effective and efficient functioning of the services we provide to the Poor.
It provides a basis of the concept of systemic change, pedagogical, methodological and technical aspects as well as notes on the Vincentian charism that underlie our vocation, our values and our mission as collaborators of the poor.
As this is only a “Manual”, the International Commission of the Vincentian Family to Promote Systemic Change deepens each topic in meetings and seminars with participants.
We would hope that this “Manual of Systemic Change” would concern everyone, and serve as motivation for the deepening and application of the methodology of systemic change, as well as knowledge of new paradigms that it provides for the construction of a more just, humane and united world. It is not a finished product. Suggestions to improve the text from readers are always welcome.
