African Leadership trains community and church leaders across Africa who 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.
Our community development partners work with at-risk groups: orphans, vulnerable children, those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and women at risk. We respond with education, healthcare, practical skills training, clean water and emergency food relief.
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.
Through the work and vision of the board and staff, African Leadership curriculum has been recognized and used by many other schools and organizations. For instance, the Child Protection Handbook has been adapted by UNICEF for a National Child Advocacy campaign against child abuse and child labor in Malawi.
