Support for philanthropists wishing to get involved with projects of public interest in Africa.
Africa is one of the continents where the King Baudouin Foundation is most committed internationally, in accordance with the wishes of philanthropists and donors who get involved alongside us. In addition to the countries that benefit in priority from our activities, we also support projects of public interest elsewhere in Africa and this in various fields including health, fighting poverty, training, the economy and the climate. In order to increase our impact, we work with other partners and philanthropic organisations, including KBFUS and KBF CANADA.
- we support individuals, organisations and businesses that wish to contribute to improving the living conditions of people in Africa
- we support individuals and local organisations that contribute to the development of their country
- and we allocate loans and bank guarantees to actors in civil society. Further information can be found in our sub-programme Businesses for development.
