ACORD?s vision is a society in which all citizens are equally able to achieve their rights and fulfill their responsibilities. ACORD works in common cause with people who are poor and those who have been denied their rights to obtain social justice and development, and be part of locally rooted citizen movements.
We focus on livelihoods, conflict, gender and HIV/AIDS:
1. Strengthen the livelihoods of marginalised communities and their capacity to advocate for their rights and achieve food sovereignty
2. Facilitate an enabling environment where marginalised communities become effective agents of conflict transformation
3. Build the knowledge on gender relations and effective ways of addressing gender inequalities
4. Promote learning, strengthen capacity and develop effective partnerships so as to influence thinking, policies and practice on HIV and AIDS
