PTF’s Africa program continues to grow, both in quantity and quality. PTF is adopting an increasingly strategic approach in the region, in which a number of projects are concentrated in several countries such as Cameroon, Ghana and Uganda.

PTF Project Map
This concentration of projects facilitates the exchange of ideas, experiences and tools and materials between CSOs conducting activities with similar objectives and/or sharing geographic proximity. An example of this new approach is the pilot ‘Country Program’ that is being initiated in Kenya. PTF has identified PACT Kenya (a Nairobi based CSO) to facilitate on-the-ground technical assistance and grant management assistance for potential PTF partners.
Capacity building activities and field visits by PTF affiliates are becoming more frequent as well. At present, a group of 19 Advisers from 12 different countries are actively involved in projects in the region. There are presently 12 projects ongoing, and several in the pipeline in the Africa region.
