African Heritage Institution, a not-for-profit, non-partisan and independent organization devoted to economic research, capacity building, and networking. Our history dates back to 2001 when we began operations as the African Institute for Applied Economics (AIAE). Until 2012, our activities were focused mostly on social and economic issues.
Then the need for expanded scope became obvious to better account for the range of issues that impact significantly on society. Thus, the new name change in 2013 to African Heritage Institution (AfriHeritage) was unveiled with broader programme areas. We are based in Enugu in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
Our VISION is a Renascent Africa that is democratic, prosperous and a major player in the global economy with a MISSION to provide intellectual leadership in helping Nigeria and Africa think meaningfully through the emerging economic renaissance.
