Community Development

NAFFA’s Community Development program focuses on promoting and supporting the education, entrepreneurship, and social development of African immigrants, students, and refugees in the Pacific Northwest. Through workshops, mentorship programs, and community events, we aim to build strong, self-sufficient communities that thrive and contribute positively to society.


Our Education program is dedicated to enhancing literacy and providing educational opportunities for African students. We promote literacy in Africa through the use of the ADLaM script and support students in the Pacific Northwest with scholarships and educational resources. Our goal is to empower individuals through education, fostering a brighter future for all.

We encourage active participation in civic life and provide resources to help community members understand their rights and responsibilities. By fostering civic engagement, we aim to create a more inclusive and just society.
