Our mission

Our goal is to help meet some of the key challenges facing the African continent by developing environmental, economic and conflict prevention initiatives that support the UN’s sustainable development goals and bring countries and people together in peaceful cooperation.

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.
