History of AFPF

In 1981, the African Food and Peace Foundation was founded out of a desire to support significant, long-term development in rural Uganda through partnering with local Ugandan initiatives. In 1987, that partnership brought forth the Uganda Rural Development & Training Programme (URDT). AFPF has been a significant source of funding and support to URDT while they launched their various programs and institutions, including African Rural University (ARU), Africa’s first all women’s university with a rural curriculum. African Food and Peace Foundation’s primary role is to support the ever expanding reach of URDT and ARU through fundraising, advising, networking, international visits and deep personal friendships which tie communities in America and Uganda together.
