Martha Dolben 

Martha has served AFPF for over 25 years. She served AFPF as Board Member, Board Chair, and Executive Director (1997 – 2023). For these opportunities, she is grateful to Silvana Veltkamp, co-founder of AFPF and URDT.


In 1981 Silvana introduced Martha to the work of Robert Fritz. It was Silvana’s plan to have Fritz’s teaching about the creative process become fundamental to the work of African professionals in rural development.
