Vision for Africa
Founded in 1976, ACORD is one of the oldest and largest Pan-African organisations. We work in 18 African countries to promote social justice and sustainable development. Our 375 staff team works with more than one million Africans and 2000 partners on the continent and worldwide.
Our vision is a society in which all citizens are able to achieve their rights and fulfil their responsibilities.
Our mission is to work in common cause with people who are poor and those who have been denied their rights to obtain social justice and development and be part of locally rooted citizen movements.
Welcome to a world of social justice, Welcome to ACORD!
