Our three-pronged recipe for success, our core focus points and our values
AfriForum is a non-profit civil rights organisation that was established on 26 March 2006. The organisation was created to call up Afrikaners to participate in public debate and actions outside of the sphere of party politics. AfriForum is not an ordinary organisation, but a tool for us and our descendants to create a better future by executing AfriForum’s three-pronged success recipe for hope.
OUR THREE-PRONGED SUCCESS RECIPE:
Calling is our secret weapon, because it offers us the knowledge that we have the privilege to work towards something bigger than ourselves with the grace from Above. AfriForum’s calling – or purpose – is described in the organisation’s vision:
That Afrikaners – who know no other home – can continue living meaningfully as Afrikaners and in peaceful co-existence with other communities and permanently free, safe and prosperous at the southern tip of Africa.
If AfriForum and other institutions within the Solidarity Movement do not have the executive ability to carry out our plan, our plan will simply be an exercise in creative writing. For this reason especially, it is crucial that every person in AfriForum works together to continuously improve our executive ability by, amongst others, recruiting new members and actively expanding and strengthening our structures.
Our personnel structure’s focus is on functionality rather than hierarchy; our meetings are functional; and we focus on alignment, communication and organisation culture.
Fight and build plan
AfriForum is creating a future with a fight and build plan. The fight and build plan involves AfriForum fighting fór justice and against deterioration, while the organisation is simultaneously building alternative realities on ground level, which makes it possible for us as a community to look after our own interests with an increasing degree of independence and self-management.
This plan is based on AfriForum’s mission, which is:
AfriForum, as a trustworthy Afrikaner interest organisation and civil rights watchdog, which forms part of the Solidarity Movement, works to ensure that the basic prerequisites for the continued existence of Afrikaners are met by working outside the workplace on international, national and local level to manage the impact of and influence the current political realities that face Afrikaners, while working simultaneously to establish sustainable structures through which Afrikaners are able to ensure their own future independently.
OUR FIVE CORE FOCUS POINTS:
See how we grow! A growing membership means that we can grow our successes even further.
