United States Afrcan Development Foundation
DescriptionEstablished in 1980, the Foundation seeks to foster hope, growth, and goodwill in Africa. It does this by providing direct economic development assistance to marginalized populations in conflict and post-conflict areas in Africa. Marginalized groups are people who have significant needs that are not being currently addressed by existing government programs, non-governmental organizations, or other international development efforts. The Foundation measures the success of its grant in terms of jobs, increased income levels, and improved social conditions. The Foundation provides funding for the following types of groups: agricultural cooperatives and small-scale producer groups, community-based organizations, African Intermediary organizations (organizations that work directly with very low-income people and marginalized groups), and small and medium-sized enterprises. The Foundation currently works in more than 20 African countries. A list can be found on the Web site along with additional information
