Foundation is an organization that promotes the interests of writers of
African origin to have their works published and African writing and
literatures made known and appreciated throughout the world.
We see this goal accomplished by involving writers of African origin
with organizations and influential people in the US, especially from the
African Diaspora and the African-American community. We also see
as very important to expand readership in Africa itself through the
involvement of writers in literacy programs.

opportunities for Africa to become a destination for tourism and an exporter of
entertainment products. The Foundation will seek to encourage innovation
in such a direction.
