Over the last two years, a lot has been achieved in the dioceses of Machakos and Makueni.
In the first year, the main focus of the project was the large task to train parish leaders from the 106 parishes in Machakos Diocese with the aim to divide the diocese into two – Machakos and Makueni.
In the second year, in-depth training improved the leadership and management skills in 30 of the neediest parishes across the dioceses.
There was also a Vision Conference held to address the socio-economic status of the people in the parishes, with 36 leaders from Makueni and 30 leaders from Machakos in attendance.
The conference’s main aim was to equip the leaders with the relevant skills for improving their socio-economic situations by “challenging their thinking in terms of how to improve their livelihoods in farming God’s way.”
Moving into 2015, phase three will continue to train different leaders to ensure that there is an available pool of skilled leaders.
By supporting this project you are allowing the leaders who are based in parishes to pass on their knowledge and skills to other church members so that more people will benefit by improving their socio-economic status and growing a stronger community and church.
