WHAT WE DO
Africa for Jesus Ministries International is an international organization with a vision to embrace the large issues of community development and advocacy for the poor.
Burkina Faso, originally known as Upper Volta until its name changed in 1983, was a French colony, part of French West Africa. It gained its independence from France in August 1960. The post-independence civilian government was authoritarian, and opposition parties were banned.
Africa for Jesus Ministries International aims to contribute to people’s needs in five major areas; education, health care, economic development and promotion of justice. Africa for Jesus Ministries International activities include transformational development, strategic initiatives, public awareness campaigns and promoting Christianity.
Transformational development occurs through focusing on improvement of children’s lives. This process first helps people and their communities recognize the resources that lie within themselves to make change possible. With support from Africa for Jesus Ministries International, communities transform themselves by carrying out their own development projects in health care, agricultural production, water projects, education, micro-enterprise development, advocacy and other community programs. Africa for Jesus Ministries International has been to other developing countries like Ghana, Nigeria, and Burkina Faso.
