THE ALLIANCE OF CIVIL AND NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION FOR AFRICA (ACNA) 
The Alliance of Civil and Non – Governmental Organization for Africa (ACNA) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization. It is a think tank dedicated to improving the lives of Africans through ideas and action. We combine bold policy ideas with a modern communications platform to help shape the national interest, expose the hollowness of partisan and oppressive governing philosophy, and challenge the various governments of Africa to focus on the issues that truly matter to the masses. It is a collection of bright and passionate thinkers of Africans and her friends on issue of social emancipation and economic well being for the masses of Africa.
 

Our interest builds upon progressive ideals of the Millennium Development Goals put forth by the United Nations. We draw from the great social and economic plans of the World Bank and International Monetary Funds for Africa and universally acceptable labor rights and worker safety, to civil rights and women's suffrage. We exist to translate those values into practical ideas and action firmly rooted in the economic and political realities of the Africans.
 

The Alliance is designed to provide long-term leadership ethics and support to the progressive movement centered in helping the poor in Africa. Our ability to develop thoughtful policy proposals and engage in the war of ideas with nonchalant African leaders is unique and effective.
 

Our policy experts cover a wide range of issue areas, and often work across disciplines to tackle complex, interrelated issues such as food security, Confronting the disease of poverty to meet the MDGs-Digital health and African development, accessibility to drinkable water, energy, and climate change and its on economic development in Africa.


Our Focus:

  • Restoring ethical global leadership in Africa and as such making Africa relevant to world affairs..
     

  • Seizing the energy opportunity to create a clean, innovation-led economy that supports a sustainable environment.
     

  • Creating progressive growth that's robust and widely shared, and restoring economic opportunity for the masses of Africa.
     

  • Delivering universal health care so that quality, affordable health services are available to all Africans.

What We Believe

We believe Africa is a land of boundless opportunity, where people can better themselves, their children, their families, and their communities with the right leadership and various interest groups for Africa.

These beliefs can be achieved through collaborations and opportunities that allow the masses to receive technological education and the freedom to climb the ladder of economic mobility. We believe an open and effective government can champion the common good over narrow self-interest, harness the strength of our diversity, and secure the rights and safety of its people. And we believe the leadership and its policies must always be a beacon of hope and strength to the poor people of Africa.

 

How We Work

Through dialogue with Africa leaders, thinkers, and various international groups, we explore the vital issues facing Africa. We develop a point of view and take a stand. We then build on that and develop bold new ideas. We involve in the implementations of international and national policies affecting the masses of Africa. We involve our selves in creating the enabling social and environmental support for meaningful economic and human development of the masses of Africa.

We shape Africa issues/policies. We share our point of view with everyone who can put our ideas into practice and effect positive change. That means online, on campus, in the media, on the shop floor, in faith communities, and in the boardroom. We take our ideas even to parliaments and statehouses.
