Deputy Secretary-General Chen Hongtao introduced CFPA’s international humanitarian relief and poverty reduction development projects in Africa since 2007 with the theme of “Love is boundless, and people are connected”. In the past 11 years, CFPA has successively launched projects in 8 African countries with a total investment of more than 35 million yuan. Currently, CFPA has set up project offices in Ethiopia, Sudan and Uganda to carry out long-term development assistance projects.

Eleven years of experience has made CFPA deeply aware that there are two principles that must be adhered to by NGOs working in Africa: local demand-oriented and cooperation with local partners. At the same time, it is very important to bring together domestic civil forces and use the Internet platform to encourage public participation. 

China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation is willing to work with all parties to build a bridge of interaction and friendship between Chinese people and African people, and make greater contributions to the friendship between China and Africa as well as the building of a community of human destiny.
