Message from the Executive Director
Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with mixed feelings that I accepted to return to ACPF as Executive Director. On the one hand, it pleases me to be back amongst the staff of ACPF and work towards our mission: “A More Child-friendly and Accountable Africa”.
On the other hand, this is a part of my career that I had left some five years ago for other colleagues to handle. Of course, I was always available to assist ACPF colleagues and the Board with my views and opinions on the strategic direction of the organisation.
But I stayed clear from the complexities of managing the organisation. I return to this prestigious institution, at the request of the Board, to lead the staff of ACPF for an interim period. My responsibility: to achieve our promised deliverables as stated in our strategic framework 2016-2020 and prepare the organisation for yet another decade of success.As we celebrate our fifteenth year, this year, I would like to say thank you to all our partners for their trust in our work and their unwavering support for our efforts. I count on you, our partners, to continue your generous assistance to ACPF.
