Stategic Review Overview

To date, under the ‘Diaspora Engagement and Capacity’ programme theme, AFFORD runs a series of advocacy, capacity building and engagement projects including our annual African Diaspora and Development Day (AD3).

AD3 and similar projects, pools the resources and skills of volunteers and associates to support and share our work and engage on an EU-Wide Diaspora Platform on diverse issues. We actively assist the diaspora through projects like Africa Without Borders (AWB).

In the forthcoming years, AFFORD intends to ensure that a legacy of its work is mapped and utilised as a cornerstone for future generations.
