NCM-Africa ... making a difference!

NCM HomeFor as long as anyone can remember, the people of Africa have been suffering from some of the worst hardships ever imaginable. Poverty, violence, illiteracy, famine, disasters, epidemics and wars ... these are just some of the problems and challenges affecting the lives of these people on a daily basis.

Since 1984 Nazarene Compassionate Ministries – Africa (NCM-Africa) has been acting as the “Good Samaritan” of the Church of the Nazarene, responding to the needs of hundreds of thousands of people in need with the help of our partners, as well as compassionate individuals and organisations worldwide. Driven by a vision, we have been acting as a bridge between those wanting to help and those who are in need … transforming lives, bringing hope and giving new opportunity.

NCM-Africa has been instrumental in mobilizing resources and developing initiatives to respond compassionately to the neediest people in the marginal and poor rural and urban communities.

Throughout the 36 countries where the Church of the Nazarene is ministering in Sub-Saharan Africa, NCM-Africa has been developing such projects as community based health care, education and nutrition for children, agricultural training, disaster response and HIV/AIDS prevention and outreach programmes. Throughout NCM-Africa, we tangibly demonstrate the love of Christ – promoting and developing a compassionate lifestyle in those with whom we work.

Building Bridges...   

For as long as anyone can remember, the people of Africa have been suffering from some of the worst hardships ever imaginable. Poverty, violence, illiteracy, famine, disasters, epidemics and wars - these are just some of the problems and challenges affecting the lives of these people on a daily basis.

Since 1984 NCM Africa, registered as an NGO in 2003, has been positively affecting and changing the lives of thousands of needy African people with the help of our partners, as well as compassionate individuals and organisations worldwide.

Driven by a vision and compassion, we are building bridges for the people of Africa, transforming lives, bringing hope and giving new opportunities.

Our Philosophy

NCM Africa does not initiate, nor impose any project or activity upon any community, but we respond to the initiatives of local communities and churches, by partnering with them in their efforts and activities.

Through consultation, training and support to the community, we lend a helping hand in the endeavour to gain self-sustainability for the projects and the beneficiaries over a certain time period. The end result is, thus, a self-continuation in such projects and programmes without the need of further investment of time, funding and other resources, allowing us to further our work in other areas of need.

We also seek to develop a compassionate lifestyle in every person with whom we work because we strongly believe that every person has the capacity to learn to help themselves, and, through doing so, also be able to help others.
