Ford Foundation


The Ford Foundation works to strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international cooperation, and advance human achievement.  In sub-Saharan Africa, the Foundation has offices in Johannesburg, Nairobi, and Lagos.  The Ford Foundation does not typically fund the agricultural sciences, but RUFORUM has received support from its program on expanding livelihood opportunities for poor households to coordinate the conceptualization and design of its regional MSc program in agro-enterprise development and for outreach to engage network universities in pro-poor activities.
