Flagship Restitution Project

In line with its primary objective, AFRIMUHERE flagship project is the fight against the illicit traffic of African heritage and ensuring that heritage that was looted is returned to Africa. The aim is to strengthen the capacities of selected African Countries to bring back their heritage.

Our current projects


AFRIMUHERE’s Diaspora Partners and Friends Hubs targets museums, NGOs, heritage, history & cultural associations to support AFRIMUHERE’s restitution work. They will facilitate AFRIMUHERE’s access to human, technical, and financial resources and exchanges to mutually benefit African diaspora to make restitutions a driver of the pan-African heritage renaissance on the continent.

2. Membership recruitment

Recruitment is targeted at African heritage professionals working in museums, universities, heritage sites, heritage communities and in the contemporary arts and sciences. The membership drive is also meant to include a new generation of heritage stakeholders, museum and heritage professionals, academics, students, artists and citizens joining together for pan-African heritage solidarity.


AFRIMUHERE is partnering with similar civil society organizations and like-minded people in countries such as Australia, Germany and the UK, and connecting them with African descendants and communities whose ancestors and leaders were killed during the colonial period and their remains and cultural objects taken to the western world. The project aims to build the capacity of Africans in conducting repatriations and restitutions as well as establish a strong restitution/repatriation movement to increase the quantum and speed of returns to Africa. The partnership is currently planning a capacity building workshop to be held in Africa towards the end of 2024.
