Mission and History:
African Leadership trains community and church leaders across Africa. Our community development partners work with at-risk groups: orphans, vulnerable children, those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and women at risk. Werespond with education, healthcare, practical skills training, clean water and emergency food relief.
African Leadership’ church leaders across go on to lead stronger churches and build healthier communities. Last year over 10,000 graduated from our two year course and we managed 25 local development initiatives in 7 countries.
The cornerstone of African Leadership is our network of Country Directors and their training corps. This group funds much of their work locally; students contribute to their own education. Since we began, over 40,000 pastors, church leaders and community leaders have graduated.
African Leadership leaders are active in: Angola, Botswana, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia & Zimbabwe.
Transformation comes about by focusing on those communities in which we have pastor training classes. We work in meeting the physical and educational needs of adults and children; in providing practical job training;in treating those infected with AIDS and in counseling their families; and in providing for those who lack clean water and the basic nutrition to survive.
Through partnerships with many local churches, para-church organizations, and indigenous leaders, African Leadership is working to provide hope amid brokenness, and make this invisible kingdom visible in many ways. In the last year, African Leadership has supported over 25 communitydevelopment initiatives in 7 countries in Africa.
