Our Mission

  • Social Development

    Friends for African Development (FAD), was founded on the simple premise that something can be done to address the incredible needs of the poor in Africa. Many African communities face the difficult challenge of meeting their basic human needs--water, food, and education. Simple needs require a simple response. And our response is to work with and support projects led by our African friends in order to tackle the spiritual and physical poverty in African.

  • Spiritual Development

    As a Christian non-profit organization we believe in a holistic approach to meeting the needs of our friends in Africa. We are committed to sharing both our physical and our spiritual resources with those in Africa. We are a Christian organization that cares about all aspects of a man’s life. Much of our work is done through churches in order to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the local community. Therefore, FAD is committed to addressing the physical, social and spiritual needs of our African friends.

…the community is very happy for what our God has done, after our prayer of years and years without water.  But from FAD members contributions they (the community) are now going to get enough water for their school and communityat large.  Pass our greeting to all our friends there and tell them that Jesus loves all people.
