ActionAid Nigeria (AAN) works with poor and excluded communities to promote the rights of people living in poverty and take necessary action to end poverty. Because we work and engage multiple agents at different times and situations, we act as enablers, advocates, facilitators and catalysts. We work to create spaces for the voices and interests of people living in poverty and their agencies to be embedded in government policies and actions.
We maintain strong solidarity with the poor and take sides with them against all adversity. These elements require us to be credible, non-domineering, continuously learning and evolving a knowledge-based, activist, self-reliant and internationalist organization.
Our core values of gender equality and courage of conviction drive our determination to innovate, take risks, promote women’s leadership and advance sustainable alternatives.
