Southern Africa is Africa’s second biggest economy, yet the majority of its 300 million citizens continue to live in poverty, therefore making it one of the most unequal societies globally. Our work entails contributing to the reversal of these conditions through supporting regional and national level efforts to end poverty, reduce inequality, and unemployment through support to civil society, the private sector and governments. In this regard we have three external and three internal strategic objectives that guide our work.
