Alpha is run in over 46 countries in Africa. We've seen significant growth over the past year driven by Alpha Youth with a high number of people taking part in schools, and we hope to see this continued growth in both churches and schools. Through our partnership with Compassion, we have seen 28,000 young people try Alpha and we pray for thousands more. In Zambia, Alpha ran in every prison (58 total) in the country in 2016. Looking forward, we hope that churches adopt Alpha as a long term strategy.
