AF was able to get the 2017  statistics on AF members’ program implementation using a survey tool administered from March to April 2018. It was AF’s first attempt to show an aggregated report on its members’ efforts at implementing social development programs. After showing the result of the survey during the 46th AF General Assembly held on 7-8 May 2018, AF expects a higher response rate from members when it gathers data for the 2018 program implementation report next year.
