What is FAD?
Friends for African Development (FAD) is called to follow Christ by sharing the love and resources he gives us with the poor and oppressed in African countries. We seek to empower and transform communities expressing God’s love by what we do.
Friends for African Development (FAD) is a Christian non-profit organization operating in Africa to help and empower the poor and oppressed. We are working with our brothers and sisters in Africa to serve the poor and to communicate God’s love through our words and our resources. Our mission is to follow Christ by focusing on the basic necessities—health, economy, education, community, and spiritual needs—of the poor in Africa.
Toward these ends we have resolved the following:
- That FAD be dedicated to communicating Christ in all we do (there should be no doubt that we are Christians working for and representing the Lord Jesus Christ),
- That the board has a clear vision of who we are and what we are about; identifiable goals for our organization to achieve.
