Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it.


At AFFORD we pride ourselves in the unique way we all interact and knowledge share and re-enforce our ideas for the development of Africa through our sometimes formal and informal interactions. We pride ourselves in the gusto to contribute to Africa and Africa's economic development where the diaspora are at the fore of changing perceptions.
