From January 2016 Msenti Group moved into its new centre in Munster. The centre was formally opened just before Christmas 2015, with 350 locals in attendance.
This centre is equipped and upgraded thanks to a donation from Gresvig Sports. The Msenti youth themselves made the effort to prepare the new centre for opening. For two years Impande has worked to get the municipality to rent out an unused “white elephant” building for this purpose. The centre will function as a multi-functional youth centre with the goal of providing 250 young people support and expertise in various areas of their lives.

The Driving Force Behind the Centre
Africa is a land filled with enthusiasm – and often to a greater extent than in Norway. In Munster district we met a teacher named Jaca. He is an ardent soul dedicated to providing youth improved attitudes, skills and a better future. Seventy youngsters have come to his home 3-4 times a week throughout the past six years to train in dance, theater and sports. Jaca has set high standards for the training, way of life and schoolwork towards the involved young people. Msenti Group has won awards at local and regional cultural festivals and is regularly enlisted by public and private companies when something needs to be celebrated or marked.
