Chapter Summary

Missions figure prominently as pioneers of modern welfare states and international philanthropy, comments a recent survey of mission healthcare and schooling. This chapter aims to link this general macro-level assertion current today with scholarly appraisal of the impact of returning missionaries on their home societies. By looking at the links that Dora Earthy (1874–1960) forged in the 1930s with the Save the Children Fund (SCF), having been retired back to Britain from Anglican church work in Mozambique, it may be possible to unpick the connection between missions and NGOs in a more personal way. Rather than Dora Earthy contributing to international child-oriented philanthropy, the entirely different area of missions and ethnography might seem the main way in which she engaged with metropolitan society on her return from Africa.

Keywords:Africa; Dora Earthy; international philanthropy; mission healthcare and schooling; Save The Children Fund (scf)
