How We Do It
Who We Target
We identify Africa-based organizations, entrepreneurs, and health care leaders aligned with FAF’s mission. We build relationships with organization leadership and take a hands-on approach to sharing knowledge and building long-term capabilities.
Advise entrepreneurs and managers for long-term impact
We seek to transfer knowledge and best practice to local management so long-term capabilities are built and changes are sustained.
Innovative, pragmatic, context-appropriate interventions
We take global best practices and innovative new approaches and modify them to work in an African context.
Provide Catalytic Funding
We don’t simply provide or promote funding that will serve a short-term need, but prefer to fund initiatives with a path to sustainability. We want the impact of our work to last beyond our interactions and after the funding has been used, and for the organization to eventually fund itself.
