MISSION STATEMENT:

The Foundation for Democracy in Africa (FDA) is a development organization committed to promoting participatory democracy, economic growth and sustainable development throughout Africa.  Founded in 1994, FDA is a 501c 3 not for profit, non-governmental, non-partisan institution headquartered in Washington, DC with offices in Miami, Florida, USA.

FDA’s mission is to: (1) implement culturally sensitive programs designed to strengthen and enhance the fundamental principles of democracy, freedom and economic plurality throughout Africa, and (2) integrate emerging African democracies into the mainstream of the global economy, thus cultivating the pathway for peace and prosperity in Africa.

FDA carries out its mission by developing innovative and culturally sensitive strategies and programs that are designed to enhance human and institutional capacity, create opportunities that reduce poverty, foster democracy and good governance, and accelerate development in select sectors of Africa’s economy. FDA also supports development through education, and by providing hands on technical assistance to existing and future leaders in civil society, government, and the private sector. We provide expert technical assistance to strengthen the rule of law, democracy and governance, elections, elections administration, and political processes through education and training.

In 2001, FDA was awarded a grant from the US Agency for International Development (USAID)  entitled the West Africa Economic Support Program (WAESP) .This  program provided training on US-Africa trade issues, as well as, the efficacy of public-private partnerships as a means of enhancing a country’s ability to conduct trade under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).  The project included activities at the national level in Mali, Nigeria, Senegal and Benin and in four states in Nigeria. The West Africa Economic Support Program was highly successful and USAID extended FDA’s grant for this program from three years to five years. WAESP was also one of the first projects funded by USAID to provide training and technical assistance under AGOA, and as a result of its delivery, the AGOA Civil Society Network was created.
