"We are a small team with big ideas. We are versatile, innovative, and love to face and overcome challenges together as a family and a community."

"I was feeling very lonely, suicidal, the doctors tried with every anti-depression which didn’t work. AAF has helped me be part of a community, it has helped me feel like I am somebody, I disclosed my HIV status to my family…  I feel more confident now."

We are a community-led initiative that aims to equip diaspora communities and marginalised peoples with the tools they need to find health, safety, prosperity and opportunity to lead fulfilling and happy lives. 

AAF works with communities both in the UK and overseas who are affected by a range of issues including: sexual and reproductive health, violence against women and girls, female genital mutilation (FGM) and mental health issues.
