Our vision

Founded in 2012 as a think-tank and research institute by a group of African and European scholars, Farafina Institute is an institution that conducts opinion polls, focus group discussions and research on issues of development and governance in Africa. The term "Farafina" means 'Africa' in the Bambara language of West Africa. The Institute is a non-profit organization that positions itself as an international platform for reflection, dialogue, and action on Africa.

Farafina Institute's overriding vision is:

to be the pre-eminent think-tank on public opinion polling providing both qualitative and quantitative data on various topical themes that affect the quality of decision-making and governance in Africa.
