Wellspring is delighted to announce that we have entered into a new partnership with Trinity Western University (TWU), focused particularly on our Abundant Leadership Institute (ALI). This partnership will see all ALI graduates receive a “Certificate of Participation” from TWU, beginning in January 2017 when the first graduation takes place. This certificate will be given in recognition that our ALI program is becoming a leading contributor to leadership capacity building in the African educational arena, which fits well with TWU’s mission and vision. The program will have TWU involvement through guest speakers and contributors, and shares a similar leadership philosophy. In addition, TWU brings a great deal of knowledge regarding distance learning, online learning commons, and the development of digital libraries, which complements Wellspring’s experience in the area of hands-on practical training in a Rwandan context.
On September 1st, Wellspring held a reception at our Kigali offices where 40 representatives from different schools and institutions had the opportunity to hear about the various programs offered at Trinity Western University. Our Rwandan team also enjoyed participating in a signing ceremony (pictured) where our partnership with TWU was both sealed and, most importantly, dedicated to God. We are all very excited about the encouraging impact this will have on the future of our Abundant Leadership Institute, and are so thankful to TWU for their enthusiastic support.
As Wellspring’s Abundant Leadership Director, Phocas Ngendahayo, shared: “What a blessing to work with like-minded people who want to serve God’s agenda and serve His people around the world!”
