Africans United for Democracy (AUFD) is a nonpartisan, nongovernmental organization whose aim is to support democracy and protect fundamental freedoms and the rule of law. We promote these values through education, conscientization, empowerment, and fostering dialogue. Our work stems from the conviction that the complexity of Africa’s cultural norms is compatible with democracy. We will achieve our mission through the interconnection of a network of African professionals who assert desires for change and self-determination. The focus of AUFD is on issues pertaining to African citizens’ struggles with regimes that exercise neo-patrimonial power because of socioeconomic issues and weak institutions that affect the entire continent. We will partner with any organization working to enable a global ecosystem of shared human dignity values while maintaining uncompromising principles of justice, equity, and fairness. AUFD hopes to play a pioneering role in the consecration of democracy and the empowerment of African citizens.
