AIFO provides support to projects in developing countries, irrespective of colour, race, religion or gender. AIFO is currently focussing its activities on supporting leprosy-affected persons and people with disabilities through integrated development projects. AIFO also promotes development education activities. The fundamental values which inspire and guide the work of AIFO are: respect and recognition for the human rights and special value of people affected by leprosy and disabilities; a belief in social justice and the dignity and equality of all peoples; opposing any kind of discrimination, especially towards people affected by leprosy and disabilities. AIFO projects emphasise special attention for the weaker sections of society - the poorest families, ethnic minority groups, women and children.
