power in people

Who we are

ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights for all and defeat poverty. We prioritise works with the poor and excluded, promoting values and commitment in civil society, institutions and governments with the aim of achieving structural changes to eradicate injustices and poverty in the world. ActionAid Nigeria is a member of ActionAid global federation. We maintain a strong relationship of interdependence and mutual accountability within the international federation while ensuring a strong balance between self-rule and shared-rule. Registered in Nigeria in 1999 as a Country Programme of ActionAid International, we have transformed into an autonomous national organisation with a strong national governance structure – a Board and a General Assembly - consisting of reputable Nigerians providing strategic oversight.

Small scale women farmers constitute a large chunk of food growers in Nigeria. It is reported that about 70 to 80 percent of small scale agricultural activities and food production are undertaken by women. In response to the need for inclusive participation of women farmers in governance, planning and policy process, ActionAid Nigeria in partnership with local women farmers across the country worked to build a strong body of women farmers that can represent the interest of women in government activities such as budgeting and planning and on policy issues such as institutional reforms and gender friendly regulations. Indeed there is power-in-people.
