Jessie Love Mutura founded Afro-Vision in 1988 as a result of her concern for the poor and needy members of the Kingdom’s community. Her vision is geared towards bringing Africa out of lack and want and anything else that causes discomfort (poverty, sickness, hunger, failure etc). The main ingredients of her vision are her faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God, biblical information and sound doctrine obtained through the Holy Spirit
A caring, feeling and compassionate person, Jessie is currently using her wealth of experience to analyze the status of Africans in business today and determine what professional input is required to help them improve and expand their business ventures. Close to her heart is the rehabilitation of destitute – street children, widows and orphans, the fallen of society (drug addicts, alcoholics, etc)
