Transformation of urban communities through Christ-like disciples engaging their communities in order to facilitate hope in the heart of the cities of Africa.
The transformation of urban communities will be realised by:
- Engaging people to use their talents/skills to help others
- Mobilising people of all ages to impact urban areas, inner cities, and universities throughout Africa
- Organising critical engagement with city leaders and organisations for true urban transformation at all levels
- Showing the love of God to those without hope in the cities
