Rapid urbanisation has come to present one of the greatest challenges facing the world today, particularly in Africa and Asia where urban populations are projected to double over the next thirty years. This projection is borne out by Kenya Vision 2030 which anticipates that the urban population of Kenya will rise from 26% (34.3 million) in 2007 to 68% (63.6 million) by 2032.
The purpose of this program is to train emergent leaders in the skills, knowledge, values and character needed to give leadership to transformational organizations and movements among economically poor urban communities.
It aims at equipping and building the leadership capacity of church leaders, leaders of community organizations, NGOs, and social entrepreneurs to bring a transforming impact to marginalized urban communities.
