Africa’s gracious and proud people are part of its magical tapestry. Just as the continent’s wilderness areas and endangered species need protection, so too does the sustainability of the communities that surround Africa’s wild places. It is vital that these communities see meaningful benefits from conservation in order to support this vision. Africa Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation that unites these goals.
Africa Foundation was born out of the belief that, through effective consultation and collaboration, with legitimate local leadership in place, rural communities are empowered to enable development on a far more successful and sustainable scale.
For 25 years, Africa Foundation, together with committed communities and generous donors, has facilitated the socio-economic development of these communities, and, in so doing, improved the lives and livelihoods of those most in need.
