The Finnish-African Society is a non-profit organization established in 1968 as the first African Society in Finland. Initially formed as a friendship society, the goal was to inform, educate and bring together friends of the continent. The Society today has remained true to its values during its establishment; to create, organize and serve as a platform to connect people from the private and public sector interested in fostering a better relationship between Africa and Finland.
Our approach is to partner and collaborate with business entities, civil societies, NGOs, and corporations to deepen the socio-economic and cultural ties between Finland and African countries. We continue to do this through our annual activities like business seminars, education lectures, partner projects, cultural events, and other consultations.
Our three objectives:
- We Connect
- We Inform
- We Network
Presently, our Board of Directors comprises industry-leading experts, former Society members, and business advisors ready to steer the Society to an exciting new chapter. We have a dedicated and creative operational team that is ready to undertake this endeavour.
We are registered and based in Finland and continuously growing our networks and partnerships globally.
We at the Society want the world to know that we are open to building new partnerships to continue our legacy to better our partners and members.
