Administrative & Learning Center


The Mater Dei USA(MDUSA) Administrative & Learning Center in Same has been the dream of Father Setonga and Mater Dei Africa for many years. It is the largest and most all encompassing project to date that Mater Dei Africa and Mater Dei USA have embraced together.

When finished, the Mater Dei Administrative and Learning Center will become the center for education and training of all of the empowerment programs Mater Dei Africa administers.  There will be classrooms for education of health workers, farmers, and self employed homemakers.  Offices for Agriculture, Development, Health and Education will be open and available to all.

Refrigerators and freezers will allow farmers to safely store some of their produce for sale in the nearby market, and since these farmers will have to travel some distance to market, they can camp at Mater Dei’s facility grounds.  Agricultural services cooperatives will be available.  Microfinance opportunities along with entrepreneurship training will be offered.
There is no limit to the possibilities for the meeting rooms. Adult education, community meetings, health and wellness, children’s programs, support groups will all be welcome to reserve the facility. 
For profit companies will be charged an appropriate fee, and these funds will offset the costs of operation.

It will nurture a learning environment and culture where knowledge is shared and collaboration is encouraged.
One program at the Learning Center brings different farming communities together, working as a hub for information sharing and skills building.
