Africans in the Diaspora (AiD) envisions a self-reliant, socially and economically just Africa. To achieve that level of transformational change, Africans must drive the process of development in their communities. AiD work to ensure that Africans on the continent and in the diaspora play a leading role in Africa’s progress by connecting their skills, resources, and ideas through our Funds, Voices, and Connections programs.
Funds mobilizes financial resources from Africans in the Diaspora to support innovative African social change organizations through its online platform. AiD fund organizations working on Education, Employment, Environment (including health), Engagement, and Equality.
Connections will provide opportunities for Africans in the Diaspora to transfer their skills, knowledge, and tools to African social change organizations in the continent through short- and long-term volunteer placements.
Voices amplifies the significant contributions of Africans in development and philanthropy through blogs, thought pieces, and community events.
