Africa focus countries: Benin, Burundi, DR Congo, Senegal, Togo

Support for projects of public interest in Central and West Africa and empowerment of local leaders.

Benin, Burundi, DR Congo, Senegal and Togo benefit from priority support of the King Baudouin Foundation. We support projects that aim to have a social impact and favour economic self-sufficiency, while also taking account of global warming. We support the local leaders in civil society (individuals, organisations and social enterprises) and we encourage knowledge sharing among them. And in order to increase our impact, we work with other partners and philanthropic organisations, including KBFUS and KBF CANADA.

Our activities

  • we support individuals, organisations and businesses that wish to contribute to improving the living conditions of people in Africa
  • we provide financial and/or technical aid to organisations and leaders in civil society for their development projects or general functioning
  • we allocate loans and bank guarantees to actors in civil society. Further information is available in our sub-programme Businesses for development
  • and we promote good practices and networking between the actors of civil society.
