RAFFA Transformation: Passing the Baton – A Call to Action

RAFFA facilitates community empowerment;  reducing inequality by encouraging enterprise and increased productivity through social action amongst individuals.

We achieve this by working together with our international, regional and local partners.

RAFFA comprises a wide range of stakeholders.  It’s our job to ensure that future generations understand and share the lessons learned and the experienced gained.  Hence the foundation of the RAFFA Academy as a centre of learning and excellence for Leadership and Community Management.

There are significant strategic challenges ahead that we must address in order to integrate Passing the Baton with the everyday working of stakeholders.

2014 will be a busy and exciting year with a series of community dialogues taking place with an “all voices must be heard” approach.  By working together we can achieve integrated and empowered communities, fit for 21st century, based on the seven key RAFFA priorities :

Priority 1:
Business and Enterprise
Priority 2:
Health and Well-being
Priority 3:
International Development
Priority 4:
Leadership and Community Management
Priority 5:
Learning and Skills
Priority 6:

We look forward to your hearing all voices on how to best achieve our shared goals and objectives.
