African Church Assets Programme II
During 21 – 23 September 2017, Globethics held a second workshop in collaboration with the All African Council of Churches and Bread for the World and on asset management.
The 2.5 day event took place in Nairobi, Kenya and brought together over 30 participants from all over the globe for the purpose of helping leaders in church institutions (such as educational centres, health care services, and seminaries) to develop a practical capacity in a climate of strong accountability and transparency in the management of assets and resources.
Part of the agenda for ACAP II reviewed the developments made by participants since the previous ACAP meeting held in March 2016 (an overview of ACAP 2016 can be read in the official report), which recognised the need for more training on responsible asset management and the need to establish a more concrete governance module for church leaders to develop their assets.
The main focus of the workshop was to create an action plan that will encourage participants to brainstorm ways to improve how they manage their assets after having created an inventory.
