Who we are
The Foundation is an independent, non-profit organisation, registered as a charity in the UK.
It is governed by an experienced Board of Trustees, supported by an international Advisory Board made up of highly distinguished individuals who assists its work and give guidance to the Foundation.
What we do
The Foundation develops initiatives which put African countries in the lead in meeting some of the key challenges facing the continent, including sustainable development, conservation and conflict prevention. In doing so, we aim to promote peaceful cooperation and support the UN’s sustainable development goals.
The Foundation also seeks to facilitate dialogue and achieve a better understanding between conflicting parties wherever informal diplomacy, bridge-building and discreet, pragmatic engagement offer an alternative way forward. The Foundation acts on its own initiative, at the request of the parties to a conflict, or at the invitation of national, regional or multilateral organisations.
Only by achieving peace and stability can nations thrive, people prosper and the environment be safeguarded.
Where we work
The Foundation focuses on African issues but its scope, like its Board of Advisers, is international.
Our commitment to accountability and transparency
The Foundation considers that honesty and integrity are indispensable to achieving its aims. The Foundation is committed to operating in a wholly ethical manner and does not tolerate any form of bribery, corruption or money laundering.
Copies of the Foundation’s Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy and Procedures and of its Anti-Money Laundering Policy and Procedures are available on request.
The Foundation has appointed professional advisers who have agreed, on a pro bono basis, to conduct due diligence, to ensure the integrity of its financial processes and to advise on all measures necessary to ensure the effectiveness of the Foundation's anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies.
