GHAFES and IFES
GHAFES is a member fellowship of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). IFES is a global network of student movements in over 160 countries in the world. Founded in 1947, the vision of IFES is to see students built into communities of disciples, transformed by the gospel impacting the university, the church and society for the glory of Christ.
Students join local Christian groups that are part of autonomous, indigenous, national movements. National movements are part of the worldwide community that is the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). Currently about 500,000 students are part of this global community.
GHAFES is part of the English-Portuguese Speaking Africa (EPSA) region of GHAFES. We work on concert with our peers around the world to share ideas and resources to advance the gospel among students in the tertiary world. For the last 10 years, we have enjoyed a rich partnership with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship / USA as students have come to join us in our annual rural missions – SICE.
