Service and Engagement
The Desmond Tutu Center at General Theological Seminary works to engage the community in its NYC neighborhood and beyond.
Desmond Tutu Program to End Global Hunger Launch
The Rev. Canon Nontombi Naomi Tutu and other leaders at Conservation South Africa, FreshMinistries, and the Anglican Communion met at Chelsea Square on October 7th, 2019 for the launch of the Desmond Tutu Program to End Global Hunger.
The Desmond Tutu Center at General Seminary is following all of the recommendations and restrictions put out locally in NYC and internationally that affect our normal activities. These will affect many of our normal activities through the summer and likely into the Fall semester. Updates on individual events, and travel seminars will come out as decisions are made.
In a statement put out by Desmond Tutu, Njongonkulu Ndungane, and Thabo Makgoba, they say that in this moment, we should “take the opportunity to respond by choosing life over death; by choosing knowledge over ignorance; by sharing that knowledge; and by caring about others through taking care of ourselves.”
Even though we cannot be together physically, may we continue to be united in Spirit through our prayers and through our solidarity and compassion for one another. Feel free to reach out to the Center at any point if you have questions regarding these next months.
