Africa Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF)

Africa Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF), which was established in 1991, works to provide a holistic approach towards capacity building in Africa. It also coordinates partnership with different developmental agencies including international donors supporting projects in Africa. In fact, ACBF itself was born out of the need for a coordinating mechanism between the diverse number of international donor countries and institutions. Currently, ACBF has three sponsoring agencies, namely, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the UNDP and the World Bank. In addition to this, there are more than 40 African and non-African countries as partners to the Foundation. The Foundation has a focus upon the following six core areas:
  • Policy Analysis and Development Management
  • Financial Management and Accountability
  • Enhancement and Monitoring of National Statistics
  • Public Administration and Management
  • Strengthening of Policy Analysis Capacity of National Parliaments
  • Professionalization of the Voices of the Private Sector and Civil Society
The Foundation provides financial support to NGO projects and programs in Africa. These projects and programs need to satisfy the eligibility criteria of the ACFP, which includes consistency with ACBF mandate, stakeholder partnership, inclusivity, sustainability etc. Guidelines and other proposal documents are available at this link.

Proposals are to be sent to the following address of ACBF:
