AFI is an initiative of a group of youth passionate about community development through the inclusive development model in order to promote inclusive social development, social cohesion and social integration. AFI envisions an inclusive community where all members are active and part of the development process to enhance a socially cohesive society. Founded by a group of youth with a diverse educational background and work experience both within Uganda and abroad, AFI is passionate about the inclusion of vulnerable groups of individuals (by narrowing focus to the most disadvantaged and at risk of exclusion) in the development process. AFI understands that to promote community inclusion and inclusive development is complex and needs innovative approaches, AFI uses segmentation of the vulnerable groups of people in the community (Youth, women, persons with disabilities and elderly persons), to determine the most disadvantaged and at risk of exclusion.
