Partners in Mission 2020 Introduction Video

Click here to download this video.

A welcome to the 2020 video campaign and invitation to support with World Missions Director, Lt. Col Brenda Murray. The Partners in Mission campaign is an annual, internal Self-Denial campaign for members to support the international work of The Salvation Army.

Producer's Thought:
This video is ideal to show with a live introduction to the campaign at your corps. For campaigns held over a shorter number of weeks, it could be played the week before the campaign start or in combination with the next weekly feature video.

PIM 2020:1 What is Self-Denial?

Click here to download this video.

This video showcases projects that are supported by The Salvation Army in India, Bangladesh, and the Bahamas. In this video, you'll see leaders discuss the importance of self-denial as it pertains to the Partners in Mission campaign.

Producer’s Thought:
Without the funds raised from the annual Self-Denial campaign, The Salvation Army would not be able to support projects like these around the globe. 

PIM 2020:2 Equality For All - Integrated Children's Centre

Click here to download this video. 

Travel to Bangladesh where The Salvation Army is focusing on equality and creating a brighter future for all children involved.

Producer's Thought: 

In this video, we meet Yasin and his peers as they attend a school, and see how the visually impaired learn differently, but alongside their peers in the classroom. There is great imagery of healthy learning with a school-wide focus on stretching and exercise. The Salvation Army is future focused in this school, not only preparing children with disabilities for life beyond school, but also preparing other students for life in an inclusive society.

PIM 2020:3 Giving Hope - The Counselling and Development Centre

Click here to download this video.

Lucky was sexually exploited at a young age. She was brought to The Salvation Army’s Counselling and Development Centre where she has developed new life skills and now takes care of her family.

Producer's Thought: 

We walk with Lucky through her neighbourhood and she speaks to us about her experiences. Lucky speaks her local dialect so her story must be read on the screen. For children that can read, the story has been carefully presented but still presents the reality that Lucky endured. It’s a privilege to hear her story and be brought into her home. Lucky, her husband and two children live in the one-bedroom apartment that you will see on screen. She is now a shining example to others and is known as a very skilled seamstress. You can find items that she and others have made in The Salvation Army’s Others program.

PIM 2020:4 Community Development - Bangladesh Command

Click here to download this video. 

At an Urban Health and Development project, we speak with the project manager who discusses the fight against tuberculosis and leprosy. We also meet a doctor who was drawn to the work here because of The Salvation Army’s Christian message. This short piece ends with a visit to a self-help group, where a muslim woman tells us of the groups' positive experience with The Salvation Army in their community.

Producer's Thought: 
This piece takes us inside a medically focused centre where we find a doctor that is there for all the right reasons. The Salvation Army travels out into the community to help families address concerns caused by harsh living conditions and empowers women through self-help groups. The focus of this piece is on the women helping themselves, and then others, while not becoming dependant on an outside organization.

PIM 2020:5 All Girls Deserve Quality Education - William Booth Jr. College - India

Click here to download the video.

Meet a post-secondary student in the India Central Territory and see where she studies and lives in the girls hostel.

Producer's Thought:
The students seen in this piece are some of the few who receive quality education in rural parts of India. This student has chosen this school because of the high-esteemed reputation and has a serious plan for her future.

PIM 2020:6 Leprosy Care - Bapatla, India

Click here to download this video.

Lt. Col. Brenda Murray visits The Salvation Army Leprosy [Hospital] Home in Bapatla. We speak with the projects officer and visit the residents of the home.

Producer's Thought:
When treated, Leprosy is now curable. New cases of the disease are very rare but some still live with long-term effects of the disease. In this piece, we hear of one man’s struggle with the disease. He is now a long-term resident of the Leprosy home.

PIM 2020:7 School for the Blind and Visually Impaired - The Bahamas

Click here to download this video. 

This video focuses on The Salvation Army Erin Gilmour School for the Blind - the only school catered towards the blind and visually impaired in the Bahamas. This school provides visually impaired children with a quality education and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Producer’s Thought:
Too often, we take things for granted. Without this school, many children would have to stay at home and miss out on the valuable and life-changing opportunities that a formal education can give them. This school is a true cornerstone for the blind and visually impaired.

PIM 2020:8 The Salvation Army Mop Factory - The Bahamas 

Click here to download this video.

This video focuses on The Salvation Army Adult Blind Center and Workshop in Nassau, Bahamas. Without the presence of the Army, this valuable program would cease to exist. Watch to find out why the workers here call it "the happiest part of The Salvation Army."

Producer’s Thought:
Blind and visually impaired persons have little to no employment opportunities. This mop factory gives them the chance to make a dignified and sustainable living.

PIM 2020:9 "Follow The Mop" - The Bahamas 

Click here to download this video.

Join Aliyah as she takes us on a virtual tour to The Salvation Army mop factory in Nassau, Bahamas. Watch from start-to-finish how these mops are made and distributed across the Bahamas. 

Producer’s Thought:
We hear about so many great programs that The Salvation Army provides, but it makes an incredible difference to see the hard work and dedication first-hand.
