African Development Foundation (ADF)

Unverified non-profit organisation

The United States African Development Foundation is an independent Federal agency established to support African-designed and African-driven solutions that address grassroots economic and social problems.

The grants help organizations create tangible benefits such as increasing or sustaining the number of jobs in a community, improving income levels, and addressing social development needs. USADF is a public corporation with a seven member Board of Directors who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate.

The African Development Foundation supports community-based, self-help initiatives that alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development in Africa. The Foundation is primarily interested in micro and small enterprises, micro-credit, HIV/AIDS education and prevention and community-based natural resource management. The Foundation only funds indigenous African organisations and does not fund scholarships, travel to conferences, governmental or quasi-governmental organisations.
