AFD was founded with the aim to unlock the full potential of students through social impact and to have social impact through the full potential of students.

Every year we send out a number of highly motivated students to set up socially meaningful, durable and impactful projects and businesses.

We do this through our events and our impact development branch that amongst other things organises the Brightminds track.
