Empowerment, Diakonia and Development
Our vision is the promotion of life with dignity.
We aim to build the capacity of the membership at the organisational level in dealing with diakonical mission and to promote sustainable development.
In the years 2014 – 2018 the department will focus on the following four thematic thrusts:
Thrust 1: Economic justice and poverty eradication
This Programme seeks to introduce deliberate change through efforts that aim at eradicating poverty and promote economic justice.
Thrust 2: Leadership development for self sustainability
Empowerment and Capacity Building is intended to build institutional and individual abilities and capabilities towards effective stewardship, accountability and transparency.
Thrust 3: Food security and climate change in Africa
This thrust provides space and platform for advocacy, awareness creation, sensitisation on factors that inhibit food security such as land tenure systems and promotion of solidarity with the marginalised in the Church and Society. The program will also focus on awareness creation on climate change and vital action to be taken by individuals and communities.
Thrust 4: Networking and collaboration with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs)
In the last 10 years, the AACC has worked closely with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and have complimented each other in the area of economic justice, climate change, peace building and conflict resolutions and this collaboration will continue in the coming five years.
