Our Project Partners

AIDS Foundation of South Africa
The AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA), established in 1988, was the first registered AIDS Non-Government Organisation in South Africa. AFSA acts as an interface between donors and community-based organisations (CBOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working in the HIV and AIDS sector, placing donor funds with strategically selected organisations and providing them with ongoing mentoring, technical support & capacity building. This enables partner organisations to implement relevant and effective interventions to improve the health status and well-being of their communities and target populations.

AFSA believes that the best way to implement such programmes is by working through organisations located and operating in close proximity to target communities and groups, because these are made up of local people who understand and experience the needs and challenges.

Food and Trees For Africa (FTFA)
In 1990 Founder, Jeunesse Park, gathered a group of concerned individuals, representing the then major greening organisations in South Africa, who came together with the realisation that the real environmental crisis in this country centred on people, uplifting quality of life and addressing climate change. They recognized that a simple way of achieving this was through the greening of unhealthy, denuded and degraded landscapes. This was the birth of Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA), the first (and still only) South African social enterprise that develops, promotes and facilitates greening, climate change action, food security and sustainable natural resource use and management, known as Trees for Africa until 2000. Since then FTFA has assisted tens of thousands of people and remained in touch and often ahead of South Africa's democratic and more sustainable development.
