The Salvation Army's newly renovated Africa Development Centre in Nairobi, Kenya, was opened and dedicated to God by Commissioners Amos and Rosemary Makina (Africa Zone leaders, International Headquarters) on August 27. This is the first permanent home of the centre, which was established on January 1, 2010, and comprises two units – the Africa Development Office and the Salvation Army Leadership Training College (SALT College) of Africa. The centre is a satellite unit of International Headquarters.
The Africa Development Centre provides support to Salvation Army territories, commands and regions throughout Africa, aiding with the formulation of policies and strategies for growth and development, and coordinating and providing in-service training for officers and local leaders.
Guests at the opening included leaders of the Kenya East Territory (Commissioners John and Dorita Wainwright and Colonels Gabriel and Monica Kathuri) and representatives who had supported the renovation work.
