Goal 1: End Poverty
As a social enterprise, AIF’s business model includes comprehensive strategy with an end goal to eradicate poverty. Through an independent study commissioned by IFC and carried out by the University of Chicago, it is estimated AIF will generate $756 million worth of discounted net incremental value for the people of Rwanda: $532 million of this is attributable to the projected reduction in malnutrition rates due to our nationwide collaboration with the Ministry of Health on nutrition in the ‘First 1000 Days’, which will improve productivity and reduce healthcare costs for the next generation
Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
Africa Improved Foods is a joint-venture between the Government of Rwanda and a consortium of Royal DSM, Dutch development bank (FMO), DFID Impact Acceleration Facility managed by CDC Group plc and International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank Group. We are a true testament to the success of partnerships in addressing global issues.
