African Millennium Foundation
African Millennium Foundation (AMF) is a strategic non-profit and non-governmental organization committed to the social and economic empowerment of the people of Africa, especially women. AMF seeks to target poverty, hunger and disease at its very root by providing African women and children with the necessary tools for achieving self-sufficiency.
Through grants to grassroots organizations, volunteer service, advocacy and education, AMF fosters civil society and sustainable development through implementation of microcredit programs and others that fuel community development, thus helping people help themselves. With your support we fund grassroots organizations working to promote health, education, economic development and social change in some of the poorest areas of Africa. AMF works to strengthen civil societies and to empower women and children.
"Money on the hands of a woman is spent better and goes further, leading to the development not only of the family unit, but society as a whole."
