GLOBAL : Community Impact

Transformed People Transforming our World


Johan Horn

The African Leadership Institute for Community Transformation (ALICT) creates opportunities for emerging leaders to learn how to grow their dreams for their communities – dreams of reconciliation, health and new hope – into plans and strategies to facilitate sustainable transformation. True transformation of communities and society as a whole can only be done in the power of Christ. To this end leaders are discipled in a holistic approach to life, faith and leadership. ALICT works to create a unique community of Christian practitioners who will lead and influence in every sector of society.

As of 2013 ALICT has empowered nearly 300 leaders in 87 nations on every continent in the world. During the three-month intensive residential program, students are pushed in every aspect of life; as well as given skills in partnership, conflict mediation, strategic design and project-cycle management. Throughout this intensive communal experience, students are exposed to worldviews from around the globe on a daily basis. With facilitators from more than 12 different nations, students receive diverse perspectives in lecture, life, experiential learning, field training and practical experiences.

Healing Grace |


In 2006 in an effort to fulfill God’s mandate to help the poor, orphans, widows, Healing Grace ministry was established to provide for the holistic needs of children in the Cairo area. In 2009 that ministry expanded into the very poor villages of Upper Egypt. There, Village Transformation was born, to care not just for the child, but for the family. As families in these villages are supported, communities begin to change as Healing Grace implements the vision of village transformation through Jesus, education and health.

At Mashariki Sports Leadership School, individuals are given instruction on building churches, ministries and community based organizations to holistically and effectively reach out to their target communities through the medium of sports. This is achieved through mentorship, experiential leadership training development, as well as personal coaching. The end product is the positioning of the leaders and organizations as transformational agents within their communities.


Pioneers |

Tom & Janet Wiest

The Wiest family are in Peru with a mission to mobilize and partner with others to reach the 200+ unreached tribes of the Amazon jungle in the east of the country. Their strategy is to train and equip mature leaders to effectively partner with existing missionaries and form new teams to reach the unreached. In this way tribal Churches are empowered to send out tribal missionaries to the unreached tribes around them.

Sports ministry plays a big part in connecting with the people of the Amazon. KidsGames is utilized to open doors and communicate Christ’s love to tribal people. The Wiests also partner with CYCAS (Children, Youth, Community and Sport) to train and equip local churches and leaders in strategies to disciple children and youth.

Sangita Charitable Trust |

Sangita Charitable Trust has expanded from a christian orphanage to include several other Community Impact ministries. Through these many programs, Paul & Grace are empowering the poor, the orphaned and the widowed through love and dignity and a saving knowledge of their Creator.

CHRISTIAN ORPHANAGE | At Sangita’s orphanage any child who needs home, food and love, irrespective of caste or religion is welcomed. There are 95 children who live full time at Sangita and are being educated and loved.

WIDOW PROGRAM | A monthly outreach to the widowed provides 300 poor and rejected women with food, vitamins and prayer. Through this program, the widows gain respect and a place in the family home because they can share the food they are given at Sangita.

WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM | This program presents a unique opportunity for women from the local community to learn a skill or trade that will allow them to earn some money. These funds are then used to educate their children and often to get food on the table.
