The Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) was established to help countries preserve cultural heritage and to demonstrate U.S. respect for other cultures. In this country, the AFCP aims to preserve cultural sites or objects that have an historical or cultural significance to the cultural heritage of the islands in FSM.
AFCP gives top priority to project activities in keeping with international standards for the preservation of cultural heritage. An appropriate preservation activity is one that protects the values of the site, object or collection, or form of traditional cultural expression as they are understood by stakeholders. Stakeholders may include national, regional, or local cultural authorities, the local community, and others with vested interests in the site and the outcome of a project.
