The Africa Rural Intervention initiative (AfRII) was conceived to embody multiple strands of social impacts in rural and disadvantaged communities. The initiative prides itself as having the eye and mind for rural and disadvantaged communities such that the locals and their context are the central drivers of our solutions. AfRII recognises the need to restore the dignity of the vulnerable demography in communities of Africa. We see the well-being of the rural children, women and youths as the only sustainable pathway to global food security, peace and development.
Our Commitment is to ensure that people in rural and disadvantaged communities can access opportunities to realize their aspirations.
Our Team is professional, dedicated, passionate and distinctively dynamic.
Our Strength comes from the multidisciplinary research-driven approaches to our projects at all stages. AfRII is indeed timely and the call for action in a long-neglected demography. We aim to harness the potentials inherent in a bottom-up innovation, capacity building, policy engagement and the proper channelling of investments to meet the development of the next generation of the rural communities while emphasizing the value of human dignity.
Our Partners are organisations and government agencies who are involved in direct interventions through community-based projects that prioritise human development in its entire ramification. We recognise the place of rural women in achieving sustainable rural transformation by giving special attention to girl child education and gender-related issues.
1. Improve the quality of life of rural and disadvantaged community dwellers using educational projects, learning platforms and research to help preserve their basic dignity based on global dynamics and realities

The dignity and the capacity of rural people and communities are improved so they can address their challenges and seize opportunities, resulting in a resilient and sustainable rural future.
Through a culture of Education, innovation and entrepreneurship, AfRII will mobilize diverse resources through collaboration and innovation to support rural communities to achieve their desired future.
Our core values remain constant and represent the basic elements of how an organization goes about its work. AfRII is committed to a set of values that not only motivate our team and partners to greater performance, but also ensure that our initiatives remain relevant and sustainable over time. The core values for the ARII are:
Our Theory of Change provides a roadmap that outlines the steps through which we plan to achieve our goal. In the process of implementation, it will help us define whether our work is contributing towards achieving the impact we envision and if there are other ways that we need to consider as well.
AfRII intends to leverage on it's global thinking around international development to continuously mobilise relevant solutions for rural communities. Also working with similar local and international organizations that share a common responsibility towards upholding standards.
Africa-RII will provide the needed capacity to individuals and organised rural groups in rural communities that link them to opportunities and organizations that complement their existing capacities and efforts.
Africa-RII believes in ownership of development initiatives. Evidence has shown the classic ‘top-down’ model of rural development to be ineffective at driving rural development and fails to recognise the considerable potential for growth in rural areas.
We shall ensure that efforts and interventions developed through our work are blended into the regular societal and business life of the communities.
Building the skills and capacity of rural people to access greater opportunities.
Offering a collection of services that help connect national and international buyers to local suppliers, resulting in increased local spending.
Amplifying the voices of rural people and pushing for collective action for the good of all.
As our communities change in response to the fast changing world, we are committed to helping our people re-tool in areas that compliment the most viable economic endeavours in their communities... more information
