Our mandate is to work on a non-profit basis, to engage in activities that contribute to the reduction of poverty & inequality.
In delivering this mandate, we strive to strengthen the voices of poor people in public policy processes. Africans deserve an economy that allows each person to lead a dignified and meaningful life.
