The African Alliance was founded as a queer-led non-profit organisation in 2013 to provide a space where some of the continent’s best minds in the development and transformation space could come together to collaborate, strategise and collectively advance rights-based work with a shared understanding of our past, our present and our hopes for the future. Over the years, the work of Alliance has grown from being a consultancy agency to a full-service non-profit with partnerships and networks globally with an equally diverse portfolio of work.


The African Alliance works daily to strengthen our understanding and practice of Feminist and Pan Africanism Principles as well as live out our desire to undertake thoughtful, inclusive and consultative work that resonates with us personally and professionally. With a 100 per cent African team with a skill set that spans the advocacy, research, evaluation, strategy and media space, the team is uniquely positioned to deliver high-quality work with and value for our partners.


Our current portfolio includes work on COVID-19 research, advocacy and mobilisation, global lobbying interventions and strategic partnership development to strengthen and amplify civil society voices working towards solutions to COVID-19 in one of the most unequal regions on earth. Our operations in the SRHR, TB, strategy development, advocacy, policy reform and research translation spaces moves ahead.
