“I want to open a tailoring shop for my business,” said Brenda. “With this I will raise my family, and I am going to train others and share my skills with them. May God bless the donors and African Enterprise.”

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 as a “universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030” (United Nations Development Programme).
All United Nations Member states have committed to prioritising progress for regions in extreme need. The world region which is currently the furthest behind in terms of reaching the SDGs is Sub-Saharan Africa.
At African Enterprise, we are called to share the love of Jesus in both word and deed. We are committed to reaching out to Africa with the love of Jesus, and playing our part in realising a prosperous future for the continent.
African Enterprise has several holistic and transformative social action programs which demonstrate the love of Christ to vulnerable and marginalised communities. These programs include advocacy for early childhood education, water and sanitation, vocational education, vulnerable women rehabilitation, health education, hospitals, HIV Education programs, apprenticeship programs, community self help groups and more.
Milne Medical Clinic
Provides free support for the local community with services including nutritional assessments among children, cervical cancer screening, malaria testing and treatment, immunisations, HIV testing and counselling, family planning, maternity delivery, ambulance services and ultra-scan services.
Women’s Self Help Groups
Vulnerable women are trained in business skills such as financial literacy and bookkeeping. They also join self-help groups that lobby the government for social reforms on behalf of the wider community.
Centre for Champions
Provides 12 months of vocational training for young vulnerable people. Students live onsite during the program with their food, uniform, training and other skills related expenses covered.
Ngezandla Zethu Sewing Project
Equips every member of the community irrespective of age, gender and race with skills that will empower each one spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally.
“It has never been easy for me since I dropped out of school due to lack of funds. My life has been under the control of friends who manage to feed me. The good part of me tells me it is better to learn vocational skills in order to become self-sufficient. There was no means for me to learn any trade. By the grace of God, I heard about the good work AE is doing so I made a move to the office. Lo and behold I was given the opportunity to learn aluminum fabrication. May the good Lord bless African Enterprise for the good work they are doing.”
– Alex Collins Seddoh, Ghana Street Children Apprenticeship Project (SCAP).
“Once I complete my training, I am hoping to start a small dressmaking and embroidery business near where I live. Once my business is stable, I will also create opportunities for other women interested in learning a skill to come and learn from me. I believe that through these skills, my life will be transformed economically and my family will live a better life. I wish to thank the Mathare Women Staff and AE for their love, support and commitment to empower me. May God richly bless you.”
– Esther Wangari, Mathare Women Empowerment Project.
