Act4Accountability’s (ACT4) mission is to build a stronger culture of African & Diaspora accountability through advocacy, civic engagement, humanitarian assistance, and philanthropy.
We develop tools that promote civic engagement and social change in our home countries. As a diaspora-led organization, we are committed to the reversal of the brain drain into brain gain for Africans. We envision an Africa free of corruption.
Act4Accountability (ACT4) was created after the lack of information from the Nigerian government after the kidnapping of 276 school girls in Chibok, Borno state, Nigeria on April 14, 2014. Since then, our work continues to champion the need for transparency and social accountability of leaders, institutions, and citizens to ensure that Africa’s future is one where all her people can thrive regardless of socio-economic status.
Our Core Values
- Accountability is essential for any healthy sustainable community.
- Social accountability is a means to build trust-based relationships to strengthen citizenship for collective-action problem solving.
- Representatives of institutional and governmental power are answerable to their communities for their decisions, actions, policies, and the resulting consequences.
Systems and their leaders must be transparent to gain the trust of their constituents and stakeholders.
Diaspora Africans share a responsibility in the growth and development of Africa and her people.
