Action Africa Help International (AAH-I) is an African-led, Africa focused international non-governmental organisation that works with communities in Africa, particularly women, children and youth, to sustainably improve their quality of life. AAH-I woks as a facilitator with the most marginalized communities in Africa, supporting their self-reliance efforts so that they can empower themselves to become resilient and ensure that no one is left behind.

We target refugees, urban and rural poor and people living in hard to reach areas such as pastoralists.  We deliberately target women and girls because they are the most vulnerable among the vulnerable. We also target the youth because they hold promise and are the hope of the communities. AAH-I is using a graduation model that helps people at the very bottom of the social economic pyramid to see how by their own efforts they can empower themselves to rise and live dignified lives.

Experience working in the Horn of Africa, East and Southern Africa.

Programmes in South Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan and Kenya

Cross Cutting Issues

We do what we do because of strong partnerships that we have established over the years with different organisations and across many levels. These have included NGOs, research bodies, and academia, government and private sector partners. Our partnerships have enriched our work across key sectors, particularly, health, education, WASH and livelihoods, helping us deliver a portfolio of successful contracts, grants and research projects over the last 30 years. AAH-I is always open to cultivating partnerships and alliances with organisations and individual supporters that promise to make a difference in the lives of the communities we serve.
