In 1999, DNA’s very first Vision Conference was conducted in Nairobi, Kenya. Within two years, a network of African trainers and practitioners had formed to Vision Conference and train trainers across the entire continent. This network, known as Samaritan Strategy Africa, launched a project in 2005 called Hope for Africa, with the goal of mobilizing and equipping national training teams in all 53 African nations.

As of April, 2010:

  • Over 339 African trainers have been certified
  • National training teams exist in 22 Africa nations
  • More than 600 Vision Conferences have been conducted
  • Nearly 30,000 African pastors and church leaders have been trained
  • Thousands of Seed Projects have been implemented

The steering committee for Samaritan Strategy Africa (known as “The African Working Group”) is comprised of Dennis Tongoi (Kenya), Stephen Langa (Uganda), Demelesh Lemma (Ethiopia), Hein VanWyk (South Africa), Chris Ampadu (Ghana) and Simon Nziramakenga (Rwanda).

For greater detail, please see the SSA Progress Tracking Sheet, 30 April, 2010.
