ActionAid Nigeria is a member of 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 started operation in Nigeria in 1999 as a Country Programme of ActionAid International, we have transformed into an autonomous national organisation 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.

The People We Work With

We work with poor and excluded people in communities, to promote their rights and advocate positive actions from duty bearers to end poverty and injustice.

To ensure that these actions and services are felt in the rural communities, ActionAid engages multiple agents at different levels; and in different situations, we thereby, act as enablers, advocates, facilitators, and catalysts. By so doing, we create space and interest for the voices of people living in poverty and their respective agencies to be embedded in government policies and actions.

ActionAid Nigeria not only maintains a strong solidarity with the poor, but equally takes sides with them even against adversity.

Working with Us
We believe that investment in human and social development at all levels; creation of accountability mechanisms with increased citizens’ participation in democratic processes and governance; redistribution of resources results in social justice and gender equality. We will thus work to empower citizens’ especially young people, women and girls and their movements; support the building of accountability mechanisms that will lead to enhanced peoples’ power in inclusive governance, improved quality of life for women and girls; while improving social justice, gender equality and poverty eradication in Nigeria.
