About ABLI Zambia 2023

The vision for the African Biblical Leadership Initiative (ABLI) is to empower African leaders with biblical truths which will foster integrity in leadership. We believe this will lead to transformed nations that are founded on truth and characterized by love and justice. ABLI consists of various events and resources that have been developed with the goal of engaging with a broad audience of African leaders from the public, private, church and non-profit sectors. The ABLI forum serves as a hub for a growing community of practitioners who can support, encourage and mentor each other throughout the year by sharing information, examples and case studies of the successful application of God’s Word in their contexts.

This Year’s ABLI , will be held in Zambia under the theme “Rethinking Biblical values for catalyzation of social change”.
