Africa Province Strategic Planning

Posted on 31 October 2021

Throughout 2020 and the first half of 2021, the Africa Province Mission Office have led the Africa Province Strategic Planning process with facilitation from Caplor Horizons. From project staff to funding partners, the strategic planning process involved participation from stakeholders from all the world in a collaborative way. On March 31, the Strategic Framework was approved by the Province and a Strategy On a Page was released. The Four Strategic Themes articulated are Quality Education, Sustainable Livelihoods, Healthier Lives and Advocacy and Justice. The Four Strategic Objectives identified to achieve the themes are Community Engagement, Collaboration, Capacity Development and Sustainability. Since the Strategic Framework was released, working groups were established to operationalise and implement the Strategic Plan with members bringing their own diverse experience and skills to the task at hand. The working groups have been assigned to one objective and have met throughout the past several months to operationalise their objectives; these plans were presented to a working group update forum in September.

The Strategic Plan is now being finalised into a strategy booklet, and the Province Mission Office will be developing an implementation plan, which will be finalised before the end of the year. We look forward to seeing how the Africa Province Strategic Plan 2022-2024 becomes a reality over the next three years.
