The Family International has been active in Africa since the 1970s, but it is over the last decade that The Family International has become a strong proactive presence in Africa.
Today The Family International is active in 19 African countries, with 24 missionary teams, 22 Family community centres, and several associate projects. The needs are great, and TFI’s efforts in Africa have been recognized by NGO and government officials.
Family members use their experience and expertise to bring God’s love in a tangible way, whether it be bringing the much acclaimed STEPS character building educational program to help children traumatized by war have hope for a happier future, or organizing ongoing medical relief programs in rural areas.
