The Africa Freedom of Information Centre (AFIC) is a pan-African, membership-based civil society network and resource center promoting the right of access to information, transparency and accountability across Africa.

We do this by supporting national advocacy with comparative research, capacity strengthening, and technical support; by monitoring treaty compliance and implementation; and by leading continental and global advocacy.

[trx_sc_title title_style=”accent” link_style=”default” title=”Message from the Executive Director” description=”We are pleased to introduce and invite you to partner and support the implementation of our new five-year strategic plan, “Access to Information: The Bridge to Sustainable Development”.

The US$ 12,313,811 Strategic Plan, seeks to among others advocate for ratification and domestication of the six African Union treaties that recognize the right to information; campaign for adoption of ATI laws in at least 25 African countries; promote transparency and accountability in key sectors and thematic areas; strengthen AFIC members especially in respect to use of regional and international mechanisms to advance the right to information; and to boost the capacity of AFIC Secretariat.

Based on our learning that vulnerable and disadvantaged groups are particularly challenged in accessing information essential for their participation and personal development, the strategic plan gives their access special attention in order to ensure that no one is left behind.” link=”https://africafoicentre.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/AFIC-Strategic-Plan-2021-F.pdf” link_text=”Full Message” class=”max_width_75_per” subtitle=”Introducing our new Strategic Plan 2021- 2025″]
