Who We Are:
Founded in 2011, Africa Transformation Network, Inc. is a 501c3 Christian Non-Profit Christian Organization committed to community transformation in Africa through discipleship, partnership, service, and development.
What We Do:
Africa Transformation Network, Inc. exists to provide spiritual and physical transformation to the poor, distressed, and underprivileged through Christian discipleship, partnership, and development.
Where We Serve:
We carry out spiritual and development work in the African communities through a variety of programs in the areas of discipleship, education, family and community development. Through these avenues, we offer discipleship training, literacy training, conversational English, care for street children, vocational skills training, community health training, and education for orphans.
We are currently most active in Rwanda through our partnerships with Africa Transformation Network – Rwanda (ATN-Rwanda) and Virunga Valley Academy (VVA).
Africa Transformation Network Rwanda (ATN-Rwanda) is a Rwandan Christian Non-Government Organization (NGO). ATN-Rwanda’s “Access Ministries” are the portal through which they serve Rwandan communities. These “Access Ministries” (Peace House, XMM Vocational Training Center, Sports and Community Development) provide them with opportunities to build spiritual relationships with Rwandan men and women of peace. You can find more information about ATN-Rwanda through their website @ http://atn-rwanda.org.
Virunga Valley Academy aims to become the premiere International School in Northern Rwanda, laying an academic foundation for students to succeed in university studies, preparing students for service in their communities, and facilitating students’ spiritual growth and character development. More importantly, VVA seeks to be salt and light in the Musanze community by providing a safe and distinctly Christian atmosphere which focuses on community transformation as well as discipling students, teachers, staff, and parents. ATN, Inc. partners with Virunga Valley Academy to initiate, empower and sustain community transformation in Northern Rwanda through education and discipleship. You can find more information about VVA through their website @ http://vva-musanze.org.
How Are We Funded:
Africa Transformation Network, Inc. is funded primarily by the general public, churches, and through grants from charitable foundations. Special events may also be hosted on occasion to raise money for the organization, although no specific fund raising activities are planned at this time. Additionally, personal solicitations may be made by phone, mail, email, and personally with business and personal acquaintances.
Why We Serve:
We serve African communities in the name of Jesus and for the glory of God. We seek no honor or benefit for ourselves. Our sole desire is to be obedient to our Lord Jesus as we make obedience disciples and care for those in need.
