What we do

African Action International is a faith-based organization involved in developing projects to assist and empower families and communities to rise up above poverty to achieve their life goals.  African Action is about restoring hope, renewing faith and demonstrating love in very tangible ways.

Helping one child or family can have a great impact on their future and their community. Every child we sponsor, every widow empowered, every sick person restored to health is in turn empowered to impact their world and make it a better place. We want to impart something of what we are and have through building true friendships with our friends/partners by providing encouragement and practical support, in order to enable them to reach their dream to become self-supporting and self-respecting with a vision for the future.  We have found our African friends/partners to be very dedicated and sacrificial as they reach out with us to share and contribute from their own meagre resources to support those in greater need.  The hospitality and generosity of our African brothers and sisters challenges us continuously.

African Action International is a partner with Global Development Group for our Kenya Mercy Home Project 552N and our South Sudan Obbo Project 252BN.  Global Development Group (ABN 57 102 400 993), an Australian NGO approved by the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Tax deductible receipts for gifts over $2 with a preference for this approved development project will be issued by Global Development Group for projects 252BN and 552N. Excess funds may be directed to another approved activity. Please note, no non-development (evangelistic, political or welfare) activities are a part of, or funded by, GDG projects.
