The Parallel Process of Giving and Receiving Service
This study is a phenomenological exploration of the lived experiences of both those providing global service and those receiving the service. Focusing on a service project conducted by Journey/ChangeHeroes, in which homes were built for homeless families living in the slums, the parallel process of providing and receiving service was explored. Through participant observation extensive field notes were gathered based on appearance, facial expressions, body language, expression of emotion, verbal and physical interactions. Significant themes are emerging, which will be further explored in six-month follow-up interviews at the end of March 2017.
