Building the largest social movement in Africa
AFSA brings small-scale food producers, farmers, pastoralists, fisherfolk, indigenous peoples, faith groups, consumers, women, youth and activists from across the continent of Africa to create a united and louder voice for food sovereignty.
AFSA is an alliance of around 40 member networks active in 50 countries. We estimate that our members outreach to over 200 million people.
Regional member networks have national networks in countries they work in. Each national network has many local member associations. Each local association has many individual members. For example, one of AFSA’s members is the Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) Association – a regional network of over 283 civil society organizations in 12 countries in East, Central and Southern Africa. PELUM works to improve the livelihoods of small-scale farmers and the sustainability of farming communities, with an estimated total membership of over 10 million people.
