Our mission

As a student organisation founded on social entrepreneurship, AFD strives to give:

Local communities, organisations and companies entrepreneurial and knowledge support.

Students the opportunity to have social impact and develop themselves through exchanging knowledge, and immersive cross-cultural and hands-on practical experiences in a multidisciplinary setting.

Students the ambition and inspiration to take initiative to make a difference for society.

Our organization is built on two pillars

PROJECTS

AFD organises social impact oriented student consulting projects around the world in which a multidisciplinary team of students works with a social enterprise, start-up or NGO.

Throughout the academic year AFD students develop a research based conceptual solution and plan of action in cooperation with the project partner and experts. The AFD team is then given the chance to work at the project location to put theory into practice in cooperation with the partner and the local community.

The ultimate goal of each project is to realise durable and meaningful social impact.
