For over ten years, FI has been advocating for the effective realization of economic, social, and cultural rights in sub-Saharan Africa, and addressing poverty and social injustice through a rights based approach. Specific focus is given to advancing the human rights of women and children since they are often most affected by socio-economic inequalities, making them vulnerable to exploitation, violence, and other forms of abuses. 

The Africa Programme serves five regions of sub-Saharan Africa (West Africa, Central Africa, Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, Madagascar and the Islands).
