The opinions, conclusions, and recommendations expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the African Development Foundation.

This research was conducted under a grant from the African Development Foundation.

The African Development Foundation (ADF) was created by the U.S. Congress in 1980 as a public corporation to support the self-help initiatives of the poor in Africa. Congress created the Foundation as an independent agency so that its operations would not be affected by short-term U.S. foreign policy considerations.

ADF began its operations in 1984 and is governed by a seven-member, bipartisan, Board of Directors, appointed by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the Senate. By law, five members of the Board are from the private sector; two are from the public sector.

As of September 30, 1995, ADF had funded 554 grants in 34 countries in Africa, totalling approximately $47 million. More than 92 percent of this amount was provided to support development grants initiated by grassroots organizations and associations, the remainder going to development research.

ADF has 30 staff members in its Washington office and has a Country Liaison Office in 18 African countries. Its budget was $11.5 million for fiscal year 1995.
