Celebrating African partnerships.

In 2009, on the occasion of PWRDF's 50th anniversary, an African Partner Roundtable was held in Nairobi, Kenya with the Primate members of the Board and volunteers, and representatives from our African partners at the time. Here follows an excerpt from the Primate's closing address:

"PWRDF is very committed to the notion of partnerships as indicated in our mission. ... There are indeed wonderful ways to live partnerships and PWRDF ensures partnership through the staff and even representatives of its board composition....

"In our group this morning we had wonderful biblical images of partnership and what I find most interesting is St. Paul's image of Christ in I Corinthians 12 Partnership is about sharing in the gospel and needs commitment. It is also about good work inspired by God. Essentially, partnership is God's work, we are just agents. I take home with me the wonderful images I have seen here, of all the happy partners and the realized achievements."
