The Paper Fig Foundation (PFF) is the charitable initiative of New York City based event management and production firm, LDJ Productions. Its mission is to empower women and support sustainable community development in Africa. PFF provides communities in need with practical, hands-on education and support from a growing group of professionals within the LDJ network. Through this process, PFF and its partners are working to create sustainable benefits that the injection of financial resources alone cannot produce.
PFF’s partnership with selected communities and local leadership on the ground is central to its mission and funding. PFF supports a diverse list of projects that includes: healthcare, clean water projects, education, women’s empowerment programs and economic development. While helping to fulfill its mission, partners and friends of PFF are not only transforming the communities they touch, but also shaping their own lives through this shared vision.
Special thanks to The Newman's Own Foundation, which has provided a generous programmatic and administrative grant, allowing us to continue pushing project growth and development.
