Alpha East Africa Week – Uganda

The Family Impact Africa Director, Lynne Knight, and teams from FI Uganda and FI Kenya were together in Kampala, Uganda for the Alpha Africa East Africa Week from July 7th-11th. Alpha (Relationship Central) is a key partner of Family Impact and we work together to deliver Marriage Course 101 across Africa. MC101 was adapted for use in rural Africa from the original Marriage Course by Nicky and Sila Lee from Alpha. Family Impact works alongside Alpha to train trainers across Africa.

During East Africa Week Lynne presented a session on strengthening relationships as a cornerstone to transform society. Then with the help of the FI and Alpha staff, she ran a MC101 training of trainers course for Ugandan couples on the last two days of the conference.

FI is excited about our partnership with Alpha and the potential of MC101 to expand throughout Africa through our trained trainers. A couple who recently attended a course in Kenya shared that they used to yell at each other without either of them listening and at times would get physical. They shared that they appreciated the course very much and have now become good listeners.
