In order to successfully achieve its mission, and short-term objectives, the African NGO Council’s corporate strategies for the next five years (2019-2023) are to:
Develop a strong corporate identity/image of, and position the African NGO Council to play active and meaningful roles at the regional and global levels for African NGOs’ leadership in Africa’s socioeconomic renaissance as means for economic growth and human development across the continent.
Create and foster improved linkages, understanding the learning among and between members, affiliates, policymakers, and other NGO-led associations across the continent.
Capacitate (build on the capacity of) the African NGO Council to become and remain an independent, effective, innovative and an efficient network of NGOs and key stakeholders, with relevant, accountable and professional ethics and standards.
Develop the capacity of members, affiliates and other professionals and practitioners in the non-profit sector across the continent to become and serve as resource individuals and institutions to respond to, and address social injustices, human suffering and abject poverty in their respective regions and communities as embodiment of Africa’s non-profit sector’s social responsibility and solidarity with the people and communities they serve.
