About us
In 2020, the Africa Impact Finance Initiative (Africa IFI) was founded by Rhodes Scholars in residence to help support the initiative, passion and hard work of African people in Africa.
We are the brainchild of the Rhodes Scholar Africa Forum (RSAF).

Previously RSAF raised funds from fundraising events with Rhodes Scholars in residence, distributing approximately two grants a year to successful applicant organisations in Africa.

In 2020/21, Africa IFI begins our journey of expanding the scope of this contribution.
We hope to harness our privileged access to Rhodes alumni networks, Oxford’s international community, as well as an international public of socially responsible organisations, corporations and individual donors, to raise funds and to distribute them to community-oriented projects on the African continent in accordance with our carefully designed constitution.
Our constitution

As Africans and friends of Africans, and as Rhodes Scholars in residence at Oxford, we want to use our wide-reaching, dynamic and engaged networks to channel funds to where they are needed in Africa.  Our primary aim is to redirect funding to social wellbeing on the continent. We recognize the African continent as  

geographically, socially, culturally and
politically diverse, and our grant giving constitution ensures we give to projects in a geographically-even spread, and to projects that, while well-established with impressive organizational and leadership systems in place, have previously had less access to grant funding.
