African Leadership believes that communities rise and fall based on leadership. That’s why they invest in community leaders that are actively bettering their communities. These men and women are the starting point for tackling the moral, cultural, and physical challenges their communities face. Through their Common Ground Initiative, African Leadership provides a theological education, a framework for community development, and an opportunity to grow a sustainable, Gospel-focused mission. This leads to impact in five main project areas – clean water, economic freedom, education, healthcare, and orphan care – and all of these initiatives are locally-planned and locally-led.
