“United we stand & divided we fall”

Promoting peace, reconciliation, empowerment and a sense of community for all people in Africa and the International community. IFORAP works to utilise the strengths, capacities and resources within communities as a means for sustainable development.

Our Story

The world needs a new vision, a new perspective on human rights, social justice and equal opportunity for all irrespective of their race, colour, beliefs and country of birth.

Founded in 2010, the International Forum of Reconciliation and Peace (IFORAP) was formed, based on the principle that success and opportunity for African Australians lie in the capacity to learn from past experiences and mistakes, focus on the future, and become positive contributors to their countries of settlement.  Our dream and beliefs are that any African Australian can reach their optimal level here in Australia, regardless of potential misinterpretations in the transitions of integration of African Australians to the rest of wider Australian community.  Sometimes African Australians are viewed as a problem with inadequate language skills and the cause of crime, with clashes of cultures and general widespread exclusion.  IFORAP is committed to change this and provide advocacy on behalf of all African Australians.

Our dream is to see African Australians become a significant contributor to economic and community development, multiculturalism and a successful and prosperous Australia.
