The Board of Trustees charts the course by deciding which interventions hold the greatest promise for reducing poverty and increasing food security. This creates a healthy separation between the setting of priorities and monitoring of progress on the one hand, and the day-to-day management and operations on the other. The AATF Board members are distinguished individuals from around the world, while the Foundation’s staff are nationals of countries in SSA.
