  • Promoting the official TAFISA activities and programmes in Africa.
  • Strengthening the cooperation among its Members to contribute to its activities in the field of Sport for All by:
    - collecting and sharing knowledge of its structures and activities
    - formulating common goals for its expectations
    - initiating international exchange of knowledge, experience and good practices through workshops, training, conferences etc.
  • Initiating and maintaining the international cooperation with organisations having interest in the field of Sport for All, especially with Africa-wide organisations.
  • Cooperating with African regional, continental and international institutions in the furtherance of TAFISA goals and objectives.
  • Implementing and promoting African initiatives supporting the development of Sport for All among communities, for example the TAFISA/UNESCO VIPS Programme.
  • Encouraging sport organisations at all levels for active involvement in actions aimed at the development of Sport for All in Africa and calling for cooperation with TAFISA.
