Who we are

We support the development of nuanced and contemporary stories that shift stereotypical and harmful narratives within and about Africa.

Through research, grant-making and advocacy we aim to build the field of narrative change-makers by supporting storytellers, investing in media platforms and driving disruption campaigns.

Our Goal

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where the prevailing narrative within and about Africa is reflective of a progressive and dynamic continent.

Our Mission

Our mission is to connect and build the field of narrative change makers in Africa; Support storytellers and dissemination platforms to crowd in more progressive, nuanced storylines and to drive disruption campaigns that challenge harmful narratives


ANF’s goal over time is to leave an empowered narrative change ecosystem and an informed community of storytellers who work more deliberately to change harmful narratives within and about Africa.

“ Narratives are a collection of related stories that are articulated and refined over time to represent a central idea or belief. ”
