About us

Action on Poverty is a specialised and independent UK based NGO, established in 1984.

With over 30 years’ experience, we are focused on providing economic solutions to address hunger, injustice and barriers to safe and lasting work for marginalised groups in Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia.

We work with partner organisations to help marginalised people access mainstream markets and sustainable livelihoods.  We enable them to address their basic rights and the root causes of their poverty, and catalyse wider change.

Our Vision:

To see a world free from poverty and discrimination where every person is empowered to fulfil their potential. 

Our Mission:

To promote economic empowerment and social change by helping the most vulnerable and disadvantaged achieve sustainable livelihoods and by addressing the barriers that limit their participation.
