AFRA is a land rights advocacy non-governmental organisation (NGO) working since 1979 to support marginalised black rural people, with a focus on farm dwellers. We are working towards an inclusive, gender equitable society where rights are valued, realised and protected, essential services are delivered, and land tenure is secure. We work intensively with communities in and around the uMgungundlovu District Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and extensively in offering support and advice.

Our Vision is an inclusive and gender equitable society where rights are valued, realised and protected.

Our Objective is to identify, promote and support pathways to achieve security of tenure and access to services for people on farms.

Our Development Goal is that the living conditions of farm dwellers have improved, as they have secure land tenure and they are able to access services to improve their livelihoods.

Government is frequently charged with failing to finalise key policies relating to traditional authorities, for example, local government roles and functions, and communal land tenure. Whilst it is true that important issues remain unresolved, it is also true that the issues themselves are very complex and that some have become so politicised that rational debate is hindered.
