Our Vision: Africa capable of achieving its own development.

What We Do
“ ACBF supports capacity development through investments, technical support, knowledge generation and sharing across Africa. ”

How we do it

The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) supports capacity building projects and programs submitted by governments and non-state actors across Africa, through  investments and technical assistance.

ACBF is the ‘go to place’ for capacity needs assessments, capacity profiling and coordination of capacity building projects and programs at national and regional levels in Africa. The Foundation provides tailor made solutions to address capacity challenges across Africa thus supporting the continent’s economic transformation process.

ACBF operates through 5-year Strategic Medium Term Plans (SMTPs) and is currently implementing the third one, known as SMTP III which builds on the following strategic pillars:

(a) Enhancing critical capacities to promote political and social stability for transformational change;

(b) Strengthening capacity to engage and regulate the productive sector and

(c) Building capacity to track policy impact.

To be eligible for ACBF support, projects and programs must be in line with ACBF’s mandate and these strategic pillars.  Eligible projects and programs go through a rigorous assessment process by a Project Review Committee within the Secretariat before a thorough review and approval by the Executive Board.

ACBF's financial support to our institution has helped us a great deal. We look forward to continued partnership with ACBF in pursuit of capacity building in STEM for Africa's sustainable development.
