Africa University graduates from Mozambique are using their education to enrich churches and communities.
Described as “the School of Dreams in the Valley of Hope,” Africa University opened in 1992 with just under 50 students from various African countries. This year, 746 students will graduate as the United Methodist university celebrates 30 years of leadership transformation in Africa.
Located in Mutare, Zimbabwe, Africa University is a strategic choice for students in neighboring Mozambique, as they can travel to the school at a relatively low cost. Africa University alumni are making a difference in many fields and sharing the blessings of their education with The United Methodist Church in Mozambique.
Mozambican Arlindo Jossias Sambo graduated from AU in 2008 with a degree in economics.
“The study program I did at AU allows me to serve in any part of human life,” he said.
