Background information

The Action Vijana Empowerment program was birthed through Action Faith Movement Mission activities.

Action Faith Generation (AFGYM) is an interdenominational Youth Movement based on National and international soul winning campaigns. The movement started out of a vision given by God to the founder of AFG (Sister Grace Nyaga) in 2007.

 

On Sunday 8th April 2007 at Redeemed Gospel Church Pumwani Nairobi County, Sister Grace Nyaga shared her vision to evangelize to the young people all over the world with Senior Pastor (Pastor Gideon Kayanja) Elders and Members of Jesus Praise Centre (RGC) Pumwani.They embraced the Vision and hence the movement was launched amidst celebration and the brethrens committed to supporting the movement’s activities.
