Temply Annual ALARM Report 2016 2015 Annual Report

A message from Dr. Celestin Musekura:

God has committed to us—to you and to me—the message of reconciliation. First, He reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ. Then He called us to be His ambassadors, as though He were making His appeal directly through us (1 Corinthians 5:18-20). At ALARM, we consider this call of the utmost importance, and we are deeply grateful for your generosity as we have brought this message to some of the most broken and troubled places in the world. In 2016, we came face to face with the cost of carrying this divine call. As the year closed, we witnessed the nation of South Sudan on the brink of genocide, with ethnic conflicts roiling among the Dinka, the Nuer, and other tribes. Though many ministries and aid organizations withdrew amidst the violence, instability, and famine, our staff remained, because South Sudan is their home. Some had lost members of their own families and communities in the conflict, yet they stood strong with your prayers and material help and brought the message of reconciliation to the same people who’d ministered death and destruction. This is what ALARM is all about. And while the past year saw some great challenges in the eight countries in East and Central Africa where we minister, we rejoice that 15,503 Christian leaders received much-needed training in servant leadership, reconciliation, Biblical justice, Christian doctrine, church planting, trauma healing, and community transformation. Our staff continued to minister faithfully on the frontlines, advancing the Kingdom through God’s incredible grace. Here are just a few of the many victories we witnessed in 2016: •

When most of the world just talked about it, ALARM pulled together key church and denominational leaders in an effort to prevent genocide in South Sudan. We also met with Members of Parliament, encouraging them to push past their own trauma and tribal identities to build a future for their nation.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, and Uganda, we saw our own legal aid clinics literally take up the cases of widows, orphans, and the poor, returning to them lands that had been unlawfully seized and freeing the falsely accused from prison.

We offered many thanks to God as we graduated men and women from our Pastoral Leadership Training Institutes in Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya. Even before they graduated, these pastors were taking home what they’d learned, bringing transformation to their communities.

Christian marriages were strengthened in Tanzania, Burundi, and D.R. Congo through Marriage Enrichment Seminars for pastors and their wives.

We witnessed the national police academy in Uganda adopt ALARM’s courses on servant leadership and conflict resolution for their own personnel.

In Kenya, we trained 43 Christian mediators who are now using their skills to resolve conflicts without dragging people to court and seeking punishment.

Through all of this, we praise the God who has made us overcomers. We give you our pledge to stand beside our brothers and sisters in East and Central Africa, equipping them to be Christ’s ambassadors of reconciliation. I trust that you, too, will continue to walk alongside us. May God bless you richly.

Rev. Celestin Musekura, Ph.D. Founder, President, and CEO

2016: Year in Review Developing servant leaders who reconcile relationships to transform their communities.

“Since that day, I am now truly recovered from my trauma. I feel peace in my heart and promote peace in my home, in my community, and in my church.” —WLTI Participant Rwanda 2016

In 2016, ALARM trained and equipped

15,503

servant leaders.

Despite the various and complex hardships under which ALARM Africa operated in 2016, we thank God that no single staff member was harmed in the field. ALARM Africa faced serious and life-threatening challenges, ranging from a terrible war in South Sudan, a deadly drought in the Eastern and Coastal regions of Kenya, political turmoil and war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and an unprecedented influx of refugees in Uganda and Sudan, but ALARM staff remained firm to the

call of the ministry. They soldiered on and served the neediest through trauma healing workshops, food relief distribution, peacebuilding, and reconciliation in addition to their normal core responsibilities of developing servant leaders. Obviously, the resources provided were critical, but the ministry of presence was equally crucial in such circumstances. We praise God for the year-end and hope for a better year in 2017, calling upon our partners to join us in this never-ending struggle. —Athanase Ndayisaba VP Programs & Development

Pastoral Leadership Training Institute

About: ALARM's Pastoral Leadership Training Institutes (PLTI) equip pastors to teach more effectively as they serve their churches and communities. These men and women, having been nominated by their denominations, come together several times each year, country by country, for a three-year cycle of instruction. Following ALARM’s own curriculum, PLTI courses range from Bible and theology to communication, reconciliation, and leadership.

Testimony:

“I am an elder from Masindi Miracle Center. Before the training, I was struggling in ministry; I had no proper understanding of the Word of God or conflict resolution. I did not know that Christians are supposed to spearhead community development. I have now understood the Word of God and how to apply it in resolving conflicts, forgiveness, etc. The training will improve on my leadership skills.” —participant in ALARM’s Pastoral Leadership Training Institute (PLTI) in Uganda.

“Through ALARM’s PLTI, I was able to sit down with my family and reconcile.” —PLTI Graduate, Uganda

91%

of the pastors interviewed rated their ability to preach and prepare sermons at above average or outstanding after graduating from ALARM’s PLTI.

88%

of the pastors interviewed rated their ability to identify and develop leaders at above average or outstanding after graduating from ALARM’s PLTI.

85%

of the pastors interviewed rated their ability to foster peace and reconciliation in the community at above average or outstanding after graduating from ALARM’s PLTI. This is up from 22% before attending the training.

In 2016, ALARM received the findings of the Uganda PLTI Impact Evaluation Report, which was commissioned in order to determine the holistic impact of Uganda’s Pastoral Leadership Training institute (PLTI). In Uganda, the PLTI has been training leaders for more than a decade. As of September 2015, the program had 455 graduates and 60 current trainees from as many as 20 denominations. For the study, 175 PLTI graduates (both men and women) were interviewed.

The Uganda PLTI Impact Evaluation Report concluded:

The PLTI laid a seed, which has been growing gradually over the years. From this training, more churches have been opened, church membership grown, lay leaders who were not full-time ministers at the time have become full-time pastors, junior pastors at the time of training have become bishops and overseers, and new ministries such as children's care, widow care, and community outreach and support ministries have been born. Community leaders confirmed that the church has become and continues to be a key partner in community affairs. There is evidently growth and multiplication of the seed that ALARM sowed.

Developing Servant Leaders Martha Mganga is a peacemaker. This is how she defines herself and how she is known in her community. For someone living with albinism—a genetic condition that causes skin, hair, and eyes to have little or no color—it is rare to be known for something other than the color of your skin. In Tanzania and many other African countries, people living with albinism face daily discrimination and often live in fear and isolation.

I AM A PEACEMAKER Martha Mganga, Tanzania Before reluctantly attending an ALARM training, Martha felt hopeless and insecure. As a person living with albinism, Martha faced daily discrimination. Her heart was full of hate for those who mistreated her, but God had plans to soften Martha's heart and raise her up as a peacemaker. Through ALARM, God began to rewrite Martha's story.

The discrimination that Martha and others living with albinism experience makes it difficult to live in community with her fellow Tanzanians. “The unkind treatment hardened our hearts, and hate and unforgiveness had become a part of us,” Martha explained. “I was hopeless, insecure, and my heart was hurting because of the way other human beings discriminate against us simply because of our skin color.” BECOMING A PEACEMAKER In 2015, Martha was introduced to ALARM and invited to an ALARM women’s conference in Arusha, Tanzania. At the conference, Martha’s story of fear and unforgiveness began to be rewritten. She recalls, “During the conference I was told forgiveness was the only medicine that could make me become a better person. I learned how to forgive and became a peacemaker.” Martha has taken what she learned at the conference and trained more than 100 people living with albinism using ALARM’s Peace and Reconciliation curriculum.

RESTORED TO THE COMMUNITY Through ALARM’s microfinance training, she has also started a tailoring project, bringing albino women out of isolation and into community with other women. In a recent visit with ALARM staff, Martha shared, “Today I am a different person. I am now stronger and more confident. The hate and bitterness are becoming a thing of the past. ALARM has been our helper. It is my hope and prayer that people living with albinism will become ambassadors of peace in Tanzania and that the narrative of albinos being a source of bad luck, sickness, or death will become a thing of the past.”

Joshua Wakita: Boda-Boda Peacebuilding Boda-bodas, or motorcycle taxis, are a fixture in the Kampala landscape, and thousands of Ugandans depend on their services each day. Boda-boda drivers, however, are often at the center of conflicts in the community and have a long history of being at odds with the Ugandan police. In such encounters, the city is paralyzed and businesses can be destroyed or vandalized because of the reaction of boda-boda drivers against police brutality and excessive use of force. Joshua Wakita, a boda driver in Kampala, recalls, “I was always an enemy to the community and could not approach the police, because I knew they could arrest me for my behavior.” ALARM’s Ugandan staff understood the need for reconciliation between the boda-boda drivers and the police, because some members of the boda-boda and police are Christians who need to model Christ-like leadership and peaceful living. With that in mind, ALARM held its first joint dialogue between boda-boda drivers and members of the Ugandan police force in March 2014. The conference provided an opportunity for the two groups to interact with one another and learn the principles of peacebuilding side by side. Joshua attended the conference at the request of his supervisor. “I went because I could not ignore the voice of my chairman but thought it was just a waste of time,” he explained. “I thought I was not fit to be in society because of my behavior…Yet on that day when I left the training hall, I was a changed person.” Since 2014, Joshua has continued to participate in ALARM training and events so that he can learn additional skills in conflict resolution and restorative justice, further developing him as a servant leader in his community.

“My dream is to see boda-boda drivers and the police become economically empowered in order to change the poverty mindset that leads us into criminal offences and ends up spoiling our relationship with each other and the community.” -Joshua Wakita

Joshua was invited to an ALARM training on peacebuilding, conflict resolution, servant leadership, and restorative justice.

After the training, Joshua asked God to help him become a peacemaker in his community. “On the day I left the training hall, I was a changed person,” Joshua explained. “I felt like I was recognized in the society, and I started changing my behavior.”

Joshua joined 100 other Christian boda drivers, and together they formed the Boda-Boda Peace Club, which helps promote peace between bodas, police, and the community.

Before the training, Joshua feared the police, but after changing his behavior he was able to reconcile with the Ugandan police and go to them for help.

The Boda-Boda Peace Club reconciles relationships by resolving disputes between boda drivers. The Peace Club also plans to open up a driving school as an income-generating project and as a way to teach Christian peacebuilding skills to more boda drivers.

The Peace Club sponsors community events, such as a sports day, where boda drivers, police officers, and the community can come together to build relationships and promote peacebuilding.

Reconciling Relationships

“I am now a teacher of forgiveness, reconciliation, and servant leadership,” Thomas Mutimanwa proudly shared with the ALARM staff in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A STORY OF FORGIVENESS & RECONCILIATION Thomas Mutimanwa, DRC Before Thomas attended ALARM’s Men’s Trauma Healing Conference, he had lost all hope. His brother had died, and he could not forgive the family members responsible. He was ready to take his own life, but God had a different plan. He was about to rewrite Thomas’ story.

One year ago, Thomas was struggling with the effects of shame and unforgiveness. He explained, “I was seriously in danger of death, of killing myself, because I had refused to forgive.” His younger brother had been killed, and it seemed impossible for Thomas to forgive the family members responsible for his death. Thomas also felt shame: “I was accusing myself, believing that he died because of my lack of responsibility.” THE POWER OF HUMILITY It was at this point that Thomas was invited to attend ALARM’s first Men’s Trauma Healing Conference in the DRC. At the conference, Thomas joined more than 80 other men—including pastors, lawyers, and students, and military, prison, and police chaplains—who had all experienced trauma. For many of the men, including Thomas, the most impactful time of the conference was the foot-washing ceremony. “In my culture, a man cannot humble himself. One in power cannot serve the others, but he himself is served,” Thomas says. “But during the session, I saw white people washing the feet of black people. I saw military men with high rank washing the feet of civilians—including myself. Such behavior touched me deeply.” Another participant shared, “I’ve never seen someone in authority humble themselves, especially to me. In life I often fear soldiers, but today a soldier washed my feet. The soldier even said to me, ‘No matter what position we have in life, we are still called by God to serve others.’ That surprised me and gave me much joy.”

ALARM 2016 Annual Designed Report By Temply

A STORY REWRITTEN After participating in the footwashing ceremony, Thomas remembers thinking about his family members and asking himself, “Why am I proud before others?” Thomas recognized he could not continue living as he was. “I realized that I was doing wrong things because of a lack of knowledge. I chose to participate in this conference in order to change.”

“From that conference, I became the healer of many hearts including my family, fellow church members, and my colleagues at work.” - Thomas Mutimanwa, DRC

God was rewriting Thomas’ story. At the conference, he learned about becoming a servant leader and acquired the knowledge and skills he needed to reconcile relationships within his family, church, and community: “Now I can easily share with my wife, my children, and other people under my leadership. I learned to forgive. I forgave my offenders, including my family members. God is so good all the time. I can say this because God healed me. From that conference, I became the healer of many hearts including my family, fellow church members, and my colleagues at work.”

Transforming Communities

It all began with a few cows. Now more than 100 women are sharing in the wealth—and fellowship—brought by an innovative project in the Kenyan coastal town of Malindi.

The Malindi Mixed Farming Project began with the intention of empowering a small community of pastors’ wives whose husbands had been trained by ALARM. Since its inception, the project has expanded to include more than 100 women in two communities. God is busy rewriting the stories of these women, families, and communities.

A STORY OF COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION Malindi Town, Kenya A project that began as a way to provide economic empowerment for pastors’ wives has developed into true community transformation for the coastal town of Malindi, Kenya.

A FAMILY TRANSFORMED Jessica Shume is one of the women whose life has been transformed. “Before I met ALARM, my life was different. My children were struggling with school because of a lack of school fees,” she said. When Jessica joined the group, she not only received a cow but also prayer and fellowship with other women in her community and training in animal management and mixed-farming methods. Jessica also began working at the project’s dairy shop, where the women sell milk supplied by their cows. “When the cow I was given gave birth, I used the milk to offer a consistent supply to the dairy shop. This ensured I had a steady income,” Jessica explained. “I was now able to plan for my resources and budget what to do with the income. My children have finished school, and the last-born is now helping me in the shop.” PASSING IT ON The transformation didn’t stop there. When Jessica’s cow gave birth, she passed on the calf to another woman in the project, Prisca Kadzo. “When I joined ALARM, I had no livestock and I was living in a small house,” Prisca shared. “Over time, I began interacting more with group members and learning how to rear livestock. Later, I was approached by the group that I was to be given a heifer from Jessica Shume, who was passing forward the first heifer from her cow.”


Temply Annual Report 2015

ALARM 2016 Annual Designed ReportBy Temply

“I was so elated! I prepared the cow pen together with my husband, and I received the calf,” Prisca explained. Not long after, Prisca’s cow gave birth. Prisca plans to pass the calf to Agnes Kadzo. During a recent visit with ALARM staff, Prisca proudly stated, “I am now walking together with Agnes to mentor her on livestock rearing, so that by the time I am handing over the heifer, she will be comfortable in rearing livestock. It Is the first time she will own livestock.”

“The transformation is real as we witness one woman who did not have livestock pass forward a heifer to another, who is now passing forward to yet another woman.” - Abigael Macheche, ALARM staff, Kenya

TRUE TRANSFORMATION After visiting with Jessica, Prisca, and Agnes, ALARM’s Community Transformation Coordinator, Abigael Macheche, explained that the project has exceeded her expectations: “It is amazing to witness the third generation of the cows being passed forward in Malindi. The transformation is real as we witness one woman who did not have livestock pass forward a heifer to another, who is now passing forward to yet another woman. This has promoted peaceful co-existence among neighbors, who mentor one another in the community. The initial pastors’ wives project of economic empowerment has turned out to be real community transformation!”

Community Impact The continuous passing forward of livestock from one family to another is a unifying factor, fostering peace in the community between Christians and their Muslim neighbors. The community has seen improved health and wellbeing of the children in the community because of the availability of both cow and goat milk, which builds up their immune systems.
