East Central Africa hosts a workshop on the Institute’s Mission Sustainability Project

From 26 to 30 September, in Kinshasa, Congo, a workshop on Mission Sustainability was held for the Province of East Central Africa (PACE). Ten brothers took part, including the Provincial and the Province Bursar, the Directors of Marist schools in Congo, Kenya and Tanzania, and the administrator of the Marist University of Congo. Also present at the workshop were two members of the Mission Sustainability Project team from the Province of Brasil Centro-Sul, Rony Ahlfeldt, executive director of Basic Education in the province, and Masimo Della Justina, professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná.

The workshop continues a project that started in 2018 in the Province of West Africa. Its focus now is on drawing up Strategic, Leadership and Management plans for colleges and the university. Some of the topics discussed and worked on were: Leadership – servant style, communication, delegation and feedback; Strategy – changes, scenarios, vision, innovation and strategic planning; and Management – marketing, pastoral dimension, financial operations and processes.

The challenge posed to the participants is to follow through on such planning and apply the methods proposed, especially through the exercise of servant leadership that is collaborative and innovative. For the Marist presence and mission in the countries which make up the province of PACE to be effective, ensuring economic sustainability is essential.
