Alumni and Friends "Give Back" to AU
More than 100 AU alumni and students participated in the 2016 General Conference. Twenty-six Africa University graduates were elected as delegates, while the majority of the alumni, 32, served as translators and interpreters. Others attended as agency staff, recorders and monitors. For the 2016 General Conference, a number of the alumni who served on the translation team donated their stipends back to the university to be used for scholarships and academic staff development.

Africa University graduate Mercy Chikhosi Nyirongo is always listening and learning, and then thinking about how to apply what she learned to help the people in her native Malawi. After hearing about a strategy called "task shifting", in which less specialized workers are trained and deployed so that more people can access health education, Mercy worked with community leaders to implement it through an organization she founded called Wandikweza.
