DEVELOPMENT INVOLVEMENT OF THE CHURCHES IN EASTERN AND SOUTHERN AFRICA

Agnes Chepkwony

Abstract


The history of the Church in Africa is even more linked to the general history than elsewhere. This is because the history of Africa is mainly one of the struggle to survive. Under such conditions the Church is inevitable propelled into social action. In the form of NGO’s, the Churches have become very important institutions during the past three decades, but they have also suffered as a consequence. This article traces these developments and shows that the Churches have become massive charity organisations. What they need to do, is to become more involved in macro-planning and policy making.
