“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now” - an African proverb

AFFORD is a recognised organisation that works to expand and enhance the contribution Africans in the diaspora make to Africa's development. We provide technical assistance and field research to strengthen SME businesses and service quality by empowering entreperneurs to find and expand proven and locally appropriate solutions to business success.

Our outreach work with disaporans and our partner communities alike will develop future plans and goals and empower the most marginalised, helping create new and brighter futures for themselves.

At AFFORD we don’t give handouts, or believe in short-term fixes.We believe in long-term investments that bring about sustainable solutions and long-lasting change for the better.

Get involved in our work though our projects, volunteering, events and fundraising initiatives.
