The word Kurumbuka (Koo-room-boo-kuh) in Kinyarwanda means “to multiply.” Its original context is agricultural and refers to planting seeds and producing a harvest. We have adopted it to describe the exciting process that takes place when a local leader brings a compelling vision to reality and multiplies it by training others to do the same. It also represents the organic spread of a great idea from one African community to another.
“I found a learning environment that was safe, and I felt connected with everyone despite our different experiences and cultures. The Abundant Leadership Institute encouraged me and introduced the ‘Lead Like Jesus’ model, which has helped shape my life and also the lives of those I work alongside. We have adopted and modelled this concept in our school and the community.”
