Hazrat Sahibzada Mirza Nasir Ahmad (rh) after having been elected as Khalifatul Masih III, the head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, visited six countries of West Africa—Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, The Gambia and Sierra Leone—in 1970. During his tour he also launched the blessed Nusrat Jahan Scheme (otherwise called Africa Leap Forward) while he was in The Gambia. The object of the scheme was and is to serve African nations by the Ahmadiyya contributions to open schools and hospitals etc.
On his return to Pakistan, he gave an account of this tour of his, in the Friday sermon on June 12, 1970. An English translation of his address by Mr. A. G. Sufi is presented in this booklet.
