Vision to Action in Africa was a program to help the University of Namibia develop a new community college campus in Northern Namibia. Northern Namibia, following generations of colonial rule, economic distress, and political instability, now faces the challenge of building a future for its people. In the spring of 1998, the Ford Foundation invited MDC to assist with applying learnings from the Rural Community College Initiative (RCCI) to the development of a new community-college-style campus in Northern Namibia for the University of Namibia. Through the RCCI's "Vision to Action" strategic planning process, a team of community, university, civic, and government leaders has developed a vision for the future of the region's people. The team, with assistance from MDC and support from the Ford Foundation, is in the process of developing and implementing a long-term strategic plan to achieve this vision.
