The true and ultimate purpose of business is to increase human wellbeing for the glory of God. When people are empowered to create wealth in accord with this ideal they experience a sense of dignity and responsibility towards society.
Unfortunately, the wealthy tend to regard their responsibilities towards the poor in terms of aid. This often gets misdirected, breeds dependency, encourages corruption and pays little respect to local cultures/norms.
Therefore, we urge individuals, organisations and states to focus on enabling, creating and facilitating long-term indigenous enterprises, which will foster independence, dignity and a strong sense of ownership and responsibility.
