We work in partnership with the African church to reach Africa’s unreached peoples with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to develop leaders for the fast-growing church. Today, around half of the population of the continent would identify themselves as Christians. Our work includes outreach to unreached and least-reached peoples, leadership development, youth work, medical work, community development and community health, aviation and support services. In every assignment we seek to work locally, building meaningful relationships that open doors — to introduce those who have never heard to the One who died to save them, to help new believers grow strong in their faith and be enfolded into maturing churches, and to declare the Glory of God to Africa and beyond.

There are several regions where AIM is at work in Africa – you can see Southern and Eastern Regions in light green and Central Region in dark green on the map. AIM Central Region is comprised of six countries – Central African Republic (CAR), Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda, South Sudan and Uganda.
