Karin Mende

Sent from Free Evangelical Church, Marburg, Germany


Karin works in transformational development and Aids ministry in Madagascar.

Madagascar The world’s fourth biggest island boasting flora and fauna that exist nowhere else on earth. 92% of the population exist on less than £2 per day. 41% of the population identify with Christianity, 7% with Islam, the majority follow Traditional African Religions.

She began serving with AIM in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 1983, where she worked as a nurse. Following instability the AIM team left in 1997.  After leaving CAR, Karin undertook two years of theological study before beginning service in Madagascar as a theological education leadership trainer in 2001.

At first, Karin was involved in discipleship training. But, God led her into church-based Aids teaching from 2004 onwards. After a ‘coup d’état’ in Madagascar (2009) and a leadership crisis in AIM’s unit, I served as interim unit leader for 2 years. During that time, I got involved with AIM’s exciting transformational development work.

Beginning in 2011, I started to organise seminars for church- and community leaders and/or missionary teams. With a few Malagasy co-workers we continue to train and encourage national ownership.
