  Cote d'Ivoire 
Description
Home of the division office, this French territory was known as the Ivory Coast until 1985. Facing the Gulf of Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire embraces 60 ethnic groups. Once a French protectorate, it gained independence in 1960 and has grown to be the most prosperous of all tropical African nations. Of every four Seventh-day Adventist members, three are under 30 years of age. Laypersons of all ages assist in church construction, women alert communities to AIDS dangers, and youth take part in various community projects. Before developing nine other production studios in Africa, Adventist World Radio programming was prepared in studios adjoining the division office. Planting of more Adventist schools has the most growth potential.
