Our non-profit organization seeks to promote democracy, civic engagement, responsibility, good governance, and the rule of law in Africa.


A Brief Word about Us

Established in New York City on September 3, 1996, and granted tax-exempt status by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS), under IRS Code 501(C)(3), Africa Monitor USA, Inc. works with non-governmental organizations in Africa to stimulate democratic principles to increase citizen participation in public service and to improve Africa’s political capacity.

How We Function

Africa Monitor USA, Inc. does not represent any government, political or special interest group in Africa or in the African diaspora and is not a membership association. The organization is administered by a board of directors comprised of individuals who are leaders in the fields of business, academics, and other professions.
