ARF was founded by Dr. Benson M. Karanja, a native of Nakuru, Kenya in East Africa. Since 1995, Dr. Karanja has provided the services which are now being offered by ARF, however it was not until July 3, 2007 that ARF became officially incorporated as an organization. Our world headquarters is located in Atlanta, GA.

Purpose:
We promote and encourage partnerships that are based on ethical leadership, integrity, sound governing authority and compliance with governmental regulations. We equip and develop leaders in an effort to create sustainable entrepreneurial opportunities, thereby increasing the number of middle class citizens in the continent of Africa.
