Touching Africa Ministries is working with church and community leaders to develop programs and resources that will enhance and improve the quality of life for a people considered to be the poorest of the poor on earth. Touching Africa Ministries is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Public Charity, founded in 2008 by Dr. Michael and Ann Elliott. The Elliott’s have been working Ethiopia since 2005.
Touching Africa Ministries is built on four foundations: Ministry; Medicine; Community Development; and Church Planting. The focus and goal of our ministry is to give a tangible expression of God’s love to the people of Ethiopia. 


Touching Africa Ministries hosts an annual School of Ministry in Karagwe, Kagera, Tanzania. Attending this training conference are pastors and church leaders from Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, D.R. Congo, Uganda, and Kenya.


Touching Africa Ministries broadcasts two programs a week on radio station VYIZIGIRO World Outreach Initiatives. Our program is heard throughout the whole of Burundi, and the western regions of Rwanda, D.R. Congo, and Tanzania.
