Our mission

Know more

The Foundation draws its inspiration from the Brazzaville Accords, which were signed in the Congolese capital on 13 December 1988. A key moment in the history of modern Africa, they led to a peaceful settlement of the conflicts in southern Africa, secured the independence of Namibia and paved the way for the release of Nelson Mandela and an end to apartheid.
