FNF Sub-Saharan Africa


We are the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, an independent German organisation that is committed to promoting liberal policy and politics around the world in the form of human rights, the rule of law, democracy and free market economy principals.

We have been active in sub-Saharan Africa since 1991. Our sub-Saharan Africa regional office is in Johannesburg, South Africa. We furthermore have offices in Cote d'Ivoire, Kenya, Senegal, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. We also do regular work in Mali and Kenya however we currently do not have an office in Mali or Kenya.

Our work focuses on formulating relevant liberal reform concepts that further the democratic and economic development of countries. We train public representatives and party office bearers with a view of developing liberal solutions for political, strategic and organisational challenges.

In cooperation with its think tank partners, we analyse political and economic freedom in Africa and introduces liberal approaches into political and policy debates.

In particular, we focuses on developing solutions to political and economic problems that are a result of weaknesses in the rule of law and democratic principles, poor education systems, infrastructural shortcomings and excessive regulation. We also believe that Africa has to be free from corruption, free from red-tape, in order to be #freetoadvance
