The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) has acquired new premises in Harare, Zimbabwe where the organization will conduct its operations from.
According to Mr Kithinji Kiragu, Vice Chairman of the ACBF Executive Board, the organization has acquired the premise situated at No.2 Fairbairn Drive, Mount Pleasant in Harare with support from the government of Zimbabwe.
ACBF was established in February 1991 resulting from a partnership between African governments and international development partners.
Its mission is to build sustainable human and institutional capacity for poverty reduction in Africa.
“We aim to do this through developing and channeling adequate capacity to spur economic growth, achieve poverty reduction,strengthen good governance and enhance Africa’s participation in the global economy,” Kiragu says.
ACBF has had its headquarters in Harare since its inception.
“The government of Zimbabwe’s contribution and support leading to the acquisition of these new premises is indeed a pleasing signal of support for our core business and role, not only in the country, but on the continent as a whole.ACBF has enjoyed wonderful support from the government of Zimbabwe and most certainly indeed the Ministry of Finance, which sits on the board of governors,” Kiragu says.
