The Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM) in Zimbabwe is set to construct a multi-million dollar tertiary institution in Harare in a move aimed at complementing government’s efforts in improving the education sector.

The tertiary institution is going to be constructed on a 2,5 hectares piece of land and will be situated in Harare’s Cranborne suburb. Expected to be complete by next year, the institution will initially enrol over 200 students.

Speaking during the groundbreaking ceremony, AFM President, Dr Aspher Madziyire said his church realises the important role that education plays in shaping the future. He said the tertiary institution is one of his church’s investments in the education sector. “We are excited about this project and we are going to invest in more schools,” said Dr Aspher.

AFM Hillside Reverend, Amon Chinyemba, said, upon completion, the tertiary institution will be offering courses which are more to do with sharpening self-help skills. AFM is one of the churches that are heavily investing in the education sector and it currently boasts of 10 schools countrywide.

AFM university is to join a host of other religious group-funded tertiary education institutions in Zimbabwe such as Africa University (Methodist), Catholic University in Zimbabwe (Catholic), Solusi University (Seventh-day Adventist)
