RAFFA provides practical action in the service of others through early stage support, and local communities to build capacity and tackle the issues that are important in their communities; this includes inequality, educational attainment, health and social care services, enterprise support and capital projects that enhance community assets. RAFFA benefits from the experience of Trustees who have a proven track record of achievement over the last 40+ years throughout the continent of Africa and the Caribbean. The RAFFA system is a Diaspora-led model (aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals), which brings together local, regional and national stakeholders to embrace the challenges and opportunities associated with the integration of local and International Development Co-operation
At RAFFA our vision for 2020-2025 is to continue to serve communities in the UK and abroad and where people involved in social action are encouraged, recognised and valued for their contribution to society. Social action is defined as practical action in the service of others.
