African Food and Peace Foundation (AFPF)
African Food and Peace Foundation (AFPF) is a 501(c)3 that promotes community-initiated rural development projects with established partner organizations. We do this by contributing financial and strategic resources.
Our partners, Uganda Rural Development and Training (URDT) and African Rural University (ARU), are located on a expansive 80-acre campus in rural Western Uganda, where over 500 people participate in programs each day.
We envision an African continent where rural communities are socially and economically self-sufficient and thriving. Based out of the Greater Boston area for nearly 35 years, AFPF has been supporting significant, long-term development in rural Uganda and providing North Americans with well-stewarded, quality development projects.
With our partners, we support the following key strategies:
- Improved equity, quality, and access of education for women & girls
- Food security through improved agricultural practices
- Entrepreneurship through technical and vocational skills
- Peace through advancements in health and social welfare
- Environmental sustainability
AFPF's unique position as a small yet extremely established organization allow interns to learn about all aspects of nonprofit management as well as the trailblazing international development projects that we support.
