WHO WE ARE |
Based in Brussels, the King Baudouin Foundation (KBF) is an independent, pluralistic foundation working to improve society for more than 40 years. We support African actors in their own development activities, with a focus on the DR Congo and Burundi in Central Africa, and on Benin, Senegal and Togo in West Africa.
“The Africa I would like to see in the future is one in which my son grows up proud. An Africa that is capable of developing creative and sustainable African solutions to African problems, and taking this message beyond the mantra that currently is.”
Gerald Abila, BarefootLaw
