Africa 2000 Charity Foundation is a registered independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation in Nigeria. It was registered in the UK as an NGO in 2004 and as a UK charity in 2006.
Africa is synonymous with poverty in its different forms, conflicts, political instability and other humanitarian and environmental catastrophes. Some of these can be attributed to natural causes which impede Africas growth potentials.
Africa 2000 stands for Africa in this millennium. It was set up to explore ways of tackling poverty in Africa and amongst Africans in the UK. It adopts the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as a basis for the framework of its activities.
Africa 2000 Charity Foundation seeks to contribute to the development of Africa and Africans by executing projects that promote sustainable development and ultimately eradicate poverty. We also seek change by working with a network of partners involved in campaigns, debates and issues aimed at positive development of Africans and Africa.Read More

Africa 2000 Charity Foundation was setup to relieve poverty and sickness, promote racial and religious harmony, develop the capacity and skills of members of socially and economically disadvantaged persons and communities in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet, their needs and participate more fully in society, as well as to relieve any charitable need of elderly people.
"Africa 2000 uses a community specific, rather than a one size fits all approach in designing projects. Women empowerment is at the heart of all our projects. Africa 2000 runs 3 programmes: Employment, Education and Wellbeing. " - The Africa 2000 Charity Foundation

Many believe that development is an evolutionary process, while others think that a revolutionary process is the answer. Whichever is preferred, Africa 2000 believes that the process of development in Africa needs to be catalysed. Africa 2000 therefore wishes to be one of the many catalysts for peaceful and positive change in Africa.
