We are an Irish Cork-based charity fundraising to support projects for people living in poverty in Africa. We are run by a membership of volunteers open to anyone to bring their own skills, ideas and backgrounds, and We are a fully voluntary organisation committed to getting the maximum funds raised ‘direct’ to our partner’s projects.
In Ireland we are organised as an association with a membership of volunteers which is managed by an Executive Committee, elected by our membership. We are a registered charity with the Irish government. In Africa we are partnered with a number of organisations, missionaries and non-governmental organisations, whose projects we fund.
Africa Direct’s mission is to alleviate poverty in Africa. Our approach is to work with Africans to tackle poverty in their own home areas. We do this through supporting, funding and listening to our African partners.
