Education for social change in Tanzania

Number: 186.1504

Providing sound, broad-based theological training is one of the most urgent tasks of the churches in the South. Well-qualified pastors are essential for the churches to continue successfully tackling social challenges. Prospective pastoral staff in Tanzania must be more than merely good theologians. They also require skills that will enable them to carry out social and welfare work in their congregations. Mission 21 supports theological education in terms of personnel, scholarships for female students and further training for lecturers and pastors.
