With several years of academic research on Africa, we are convinced that the unavailability of data and information on African realities is at the centre of the ill-advised and failed policies in various sectors of social, economic and human resource development.

Making such qualitative and quantitative data available to actors in these sectors, we believe, will help redirect efforts towards the real issues with the potential of achieving the expected results.

Farafina Institute's role is to create the much-needed bridge between these realities, understandings and conceptualizations of them by the people, and the actors who need authentic data on them for development policies.
