Over 90% of Africa University graduates return home to make a difference?

The development of Africa University is a consequence of the growth of United Methodism in Africa. The growth in membership and the emerging socio-economic and political needs in their countries led the African Bishops of the United Methodist Church (UMC) to call on their Church to invest in higher education provision in Africa. 

 

ABOUT AFRICA UNIVERSITY FUND (AUF)

In 1988, by action of the General Conference Africa University was established as a fully-accredited intuition of higher learning. On 21 January, 1992 , the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Robert Gabriel Mugabe, issued the Africa University Charter by official proclamation, making the institution the first recognized private university in Zimbabwe. For over 30 years Africa University has shaped the lives of thousands of young people all over the continent of Africa by equipping them with the knowledge to alleviate poverty, build peace, stability and drive development. Most of the graduates return to their home country to make a difference. Because of generous gifts to this fund, Africa's new generation of leaders is better prepared and equipped to prevent conflict and resolve conflict and build lasting peace on the continent. This fund is managed through the office of Africa University Development office.
