Who We Are

ActionAid South Africa is a nationally registered civil society organisation and a part of the ActionAid International Federation, a global social justice federation working in 45 countries around the world. We work with people living in poverty and exclusion to build sustainable, people-centred and just alternatives to injustice and inequality.

Guided by feminist analysis and a Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA), we see the interconnections between people’s struggles for social transformation. We ally ourselves primarily with the youth, grass-roots communities, like-minded organisations and social movements to develop initiatives and campaigns that address the systemic drivers of poverty, injustice and inequality in South Africa.
