Although fewer Africans than ever before live in abject poverty, inequality in opportunities and access to services has persisted, and income inequality within African countries has actually risen since the millennium (World Bank, 2013).
Social exclusion and low social status caused by discrimination, due to variables such gender and age, or cultural beliefs, can mean that individuals are more likely to live in poverty, lack access to employment
and services, and have limited ability to engage in local or national decision-making processes.
We uphold the dignity and value of each and every person, working towards an equitable and inclusive Africa. We work closely with a range of partners to challenge stigma, tackle systemic inequities, and raise up those who are disadvantaged within their local communities.
We have developed Youth and Female Empowerment program streams, and partner with organisations to support a range of vulnerable people.
