We multiply indigenous leaders who accelerate sustainable transformation
Our mission is joining communities to improve the physical, social, and economic health of Africa, supporting local self-reliance and enhancing the quality of life for the residents through community-based problem solving, innovative community-development models and public/private cooperation.
Connecting the Right Leaders with Provision
Favour Africa serves, trains, and mobilizes indigenous leaders for community redevelopment in South Sudan and northern Uganda. By raising up and equipping capable indigenous leaders able to solve their own society’s problems, Favour Africa provides a trustworthy front-line organization to bring positive community redevelopment in difficult, war-torn regions.
Whether education, radio, mobile medical, rural community development, youth and women career training, health education, church building, etc. – what we do centers around providing the training, service, and mobilization great indigenous leaders need to solve their own societies’ problems from the inside. The locals know the language, the culture, and are willing to go into war zones where few westerners are willing to go, yet they need basic equipment, administration, networking, and funds that we can easily supply from western nations.
What We Do
Our work is not primarily humanitarian aid – though we do that – but it is raising up, training, serving, and mobilizing the leaders who are doing work that addresses root causes. The leaders and we are, of course, involved in humanitarian aid of all kinds, but the main work we do that no one else does is to redevelop communities by raising up its leaders who in turn raise up more indigenous leaders to provide long-term, sustainable solutions. A project we’re working on now is to build a radio station in Juba, South Sudan, immediately to begin sharing education and practical training of the first of its kind in the country, even during the current war. Favour Africa has a radio license, but we need to raise funds to finish the work that has started.
The organization started in 2004 during the war with Joseph Kony and the LRA in northern Uganda, and those Ugandan leaders who did much to end the war and rebuild a generation are eagerly working in South Sudan to see civil war end there too.
