About Us

History of AFREN

The history of AfREN cannot be told without the mention of Department of Consumer and Food Sciences of the University of Pretoria, South Africa.

A few postgraduate students who are foreign nationals were sharing their regrets about the poor state of research facilities and funding at respective home countries during lunch break sometime in July 2017.

The informal discuss held the opinion that if facilities and research fundamentals were adequate in respective African countries, leaving family, friends and sometimes career back home and sojourning to better organized country in the pursuit of sound science would not be the only option available for research scientists who are passionate about excellence.

2017

Discussions Started

Almost three years ago we started as a discussion group of about five students.

2019

Formation

Not much later we realized we share the same ideology about development and infrastructure and from that point we began to grow fast.

Until the year 2019, we have just been a discussion group but now we have fully become a body that is ready for transformation.
