Description

ISWEN is a research institute that focuses on the way that the church engages with the world outside the church. In recent years the focus has been similar as FCN SA's focus: poverty, climate and environment, specifically related to the household in Africa. ISWEN has been working closely with Nova, and is interested in strengthening this relationship, as well as the relationship with the FCN SA.

Core strengths

As ISWEN's capacity will grow in the coming years, it can play a role in programme development and also help to link FCN SA partners with academic and research institutions.

Geographical scope

South Africa: Gauteng and Mpumalanga
