Who We Are

ActionAid is an as International Non-Governmental organization registered in the Netherlands with its headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa. ActionAid International works in 41 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

ActionAid Nigeria is a member of the ActionAid global federation. We maintain a strong relationship of interdependence and mutual accountability within the international federation, ensuring a strong balance between self-rule and shared-rule. Although we commenced operations in Nigeria in 1999 as a Country Programme of ActionAid International, we have transformed into an autonomous national organization registered with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission.

We also have a partnership agreement with the National Planning Commission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We have a strong national governance structure – a board and a General Assembly – consisting of reputable Nigerians providing strategic oversight.
