"If I had to define the work of the African Union Foundation, I would define it as the process of building an inclusive development agenda towards the “Africa we want”- a continent where all women are empowered; where young people can easily access opportunities and where development is funded from within the continent.
I ïnvite you to join us in this quest to build a better Africa and make a contribution to achieve this ambitious common goal towards the Africa we want as envisioned in Agenda 2063 ."
Chief Executive: Louis Napo Gnagbe

By 2025 we have to consign the hand held-hoe to the museum, introduce more technology and put an end to inefficient and unhealthy methods of farming to improve the lives of women across Africa. The African Union Foundation, led by our Chairperson Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, has partnered with like-minded organisations to champion this cause. The Foundation welcomes your contribution towards this goal which will enhance the modernisation of agriculture, improve productivity and increase food security as Africa's population comes closer to surpassing the one billion mark.
