Alongside Africa is a charity registered with the Charities Commission of England and Wales, registration number 1146752.  

Alongside Africa is committed to a world in which every person has the opportunity to earn a living.  We work in partnership with local authorities, community groups and individuals to reach the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Our strapline of opportunities, not aid recognises the right of marginalised and disadvantaged communities to be able take responsibility for their own development, and for this to be achieved with dignity and self respect; critical factors that are often lost when beneficiaries come to rely on hand-outs provided by aid organisations.
