Afristar Foundation is a community interest organisation/charity committed to providing support for disadvantaged Africans in the UK and promoting African heritage in a variety of ways.

    We are also committed to the welfare of children with learning disabilities, particularly Autism which is yet to be fully recognized in Africa as a disability but is often construed as a physical manifestation of spiritual attack on the parents of the sufferers.
  • Our Vision

    For all African children and adults living with learning disability to be treated with dignity and as equals and for all Africans to see learning disability for what it is and not as a demonic manifestation or spiritual attack.

  • Our Work

    To have a support network for Africans living with learning disability and their families especially due to cultural and religious belief systems which portray learning disability as taboo, thereby causing various forms of abuse.
