African Church Assets Programme III

Strengthening African Churches and Church-Related Organisations in their Assets Management through Ethical Investments 

ACAP III, Nairobi, Kenya, 21-23 May 2019

 
The African Church Assets Programme (ACAP) has so far seen two phases. The Programme was initiated and undertaken in collaboration with the All African Conference of Churches (AACC) and with the support of Brot für die Welt to support churches and Church-Related Organisations in Africa through training, preparation of inventories and action plans and provision of resources to improve the management of their assets (land, properties and other assets) and thereby strengthen their institutional sustainability.
 
This third phase will focus on orientation and capacity building around what ethical investments are, identification of church funds that are available for investment and of church projects that would have potential for and be attractive to external investors. Churches and CROs will be enabled to take the steps needed to ensure that their own offers for investors are robust and compliant with reporting and accountancy standards and to build and develop ethical investments portfolios that are diversified. Leaders of churches and CROs would be exposed to education about ethical investments, receive further skills, resources and training that strengthen the awareness of- and need for ethical investments in assets and provide opportunities for networking.
