We are represented and hosted by offices and / or organizations in each programme country. When people visit – we listen. After all, local people are the experts in their local situation.
We listen carefully to the challenges that people or groups who come to us face and if we can address them – we will. This process is often time consuming but we are patient because it lays the foundation for long-term poverty reduction.
This way we can really identify what are the actions we can take to help them – is it education, advice, tools, awareness raising, a network, investment capital, travel?
Target partners are best equipped to make change because:
We are present in seven countries across West Africa and South America. The problem is the same in all of them – extreme poverty.
Action 10 is different – we work in equal partnership and operate on a 10-point agenda to bring sustainable change
Local stories shape what we do. The first project Action 10 undertook was in Togo and has become a huge success story.
According to recent estimates, in 2015, 702 million people still lived in extreme poverty – despite billions of dollars in development aid.
