AATF works towards food security and poverty reduction in Sub-Saharan Africa, and its structure and operations draw upon the best practices and resources of both the public and private sectors.
It also contributes to capacity building in Africa by engaging African institutions in the execution of tasks that contribute to the Foundation’s mission.
