We are dedicated to promoting economic, social, and environmental responsibility, and development strategies with specific focus on African communities. In our dealings, we strive to build sustainable communities where current community resources are utilized to meet current needs, while ensuring that adequate resources are available for future generations. We seek to promote better livelihoods in African communities in a manner that safeguard nature’s ability to function over time, through encouraging waste minimization, preventing the impacts of climate change, promoting efficiency, and developing resources to regenerate the local economy. We encourage shared information among African communities, because we believe that communities are a living system in which human, natural and economic elements are interdependent and draw strength from each other.

Our aims and Objectives



Our transformational leadership development programs and lectures, offered through our Christian Leadership Development Institute are designed to educate, motivate, and stimulate organizations and individuals about the fundamental trends and concepts that will propel the society to new heights. We provide customized contents for corporate conferences, tours, strategy sessions, team meetings, and other events. One important feature of our training is that it allows students to acquire leadership strategies in a Christian and the normative format; where their knowledge of world concepts is linked to Biblical principles and their developmental concept is founded on Christian values. Students will have the ability to transform, shape, and influence those with whom they collaborate, teach, and lead.
