Cape Town Program Development Workshop
The first Christianity and Social Change in Contemporary Africa workshop was held at the University of Cape Town from 7 to 18 March 2016. This workshop was designed as a program development workshop. Thirty grantees, representing 22 of the 23 grant teams, attended this program development workshop. The workshop provided a venue for grantees to meet with 8 facilitators and 8 advisers/mentors for two weeks and discuss questions related to research methods and theories. Grantees were also given an opportunity to conduct library search at the university as well as establishing informal networking. During the workshop, each grantee received a thumb drive loaded with resource materials and a dozen books for foundational reading recommended by Program Directors. For more information about the Cape Town Workshop, see a brief report written by Nellie Kooistra and posted under blog section.
