What is Quakr
Quakr is a Young Quaker Network which aspires to be a lose organisation to collect all Young Quaker activities in one place . We hope that it will be a central place for groups to host their pages, list events, share resources and post interesting things for the Young Quaker Community.
This is a grassroots initiative that will be owned and run by the community. One of the key design points is that all elements are as "self service" as possible, e.g. if you want to create a webpage for your group you click the "Add page" button, no applications or sending emails back and forth. The hope will be that it becomes self sustaining.
Who are Young Quakers
Briefly, Quakerism is a christian based religious movement that was founded in England in the mid 17th century, Quakers' testimonies (our message to the world if you like) is that of Equality, Peace, Simplicity and Truth. Quakers believe that there is 'that of god in everyone' and therefore everyone is of equal worth. Quakers generally meet (often called a "Meeting for worship") in silent listening to that of god/the sprit/soul/the inner light or to any Friend who has felt moved to speak in the Meeting.
As a community of Quakers we strive, struggle and journey together to bring our testimonies to life.
