Constraints and Opportunities


The Diocese faces a number of constraints in its work.  It also has many opportunities.




The main constraints that the Diocese faces include:


Human resources.  One of the main constraints the Diocese is facing in its work is lack of capacity.  Generally, the levels of education of church leaders and their capacity to appreciate the diocesan strategies for the development of the diocese, and that of other church workers in the Diocese is low.


Financial Constraints.  The Diocese has a small financial base due to the low levels of income of the population.  The population survives on subsistence farming and there are no cash crops.  This has had a major impact on church work including building church houses, paying salaries for church workers and many programmes of the church.


Lack of Information.  Lack of statistical information at every level still affects the ability of the Diocese to design plans and programmes, monitor the implementation of such plans and programmes and evaluate the success at the end of their life time.




In spite of the above constraints, the Diocese has immense opportunities for fulfilling its mission.  These opportunities include new and dynamic leadership of the Diocese, emerging support of the many educated Christians from the Diocese, increased programme support from Government institutions, support of partners in evangelism and development, and the sheer will to succeed.
