Who We Are?

African Youth Development Foundation (AFRYDEF) is a not-profit, non-governmental organization established in Nigeria in 1999 to mobilize
resources and to promote and support sustainable youth empowerment and rural development initiatives in Africa

Our Mission

Is to cost-effectively transform the lives of youths, women and children in the rural communities of Africa through facilitating sustainable
youth and rural development initiatives in their communities. Our strategic objectives are

To Assist Indigent Families

Meet their food supplies, clothing and housing needs

To Contribute to the Alleviation of Pervasive Poverty

Through facilitating access to formal education and skills training for children and youths respectively

To Strengthen the Capacities of Community Health Centers

In providing health care services, family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention

To Promote Structures, Systems and Processes

That lead to the equitable distribution of resources for accelerated development in the rural areas

To Strengthen the Capacities of Community-based Organizations

In peace building, conflict resolution and development cooperation

To Build Local Capacities for Early Warning and Early Response

At incidences of epidemic and humanitarian crises in the rural communities

Our Vision

In AFRYDEF, we envision an African society where children, youths and women in the rural areas are viewed as assets and resources, and thus encouraged to develop their full potentials
