The association Collective Action Against Poverty (CAAP) is a non-profit humanitarian organisation, created on 20 February 2013 to contribute to the improvement of people's living conditions. It has set itself several missions to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As its name suggests, this organisation aims to develop humanism and connect people or communities interested in the development of grassroots communities. The creation of ACCP was motivated by :

  • the fight against human rights violations in all their forms;
  • the stubborn poverty of the population;
  • the miserable and very precarious living conditions of the poor, the overwhelming majority of whom are young girls, children, girl mothers and women
  • the gloomy picture of infant mortality, inaccessibility to basic social services (health, education, basic rights), low attendance at health centres, the perverse effects of STI/HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
  • the inability of the promoter members to cope with this situation and to help these vulnerable groups individually
  • the willingness of these promoter members to join forces and work actively to give hope to these deprived social categories.


In doing so, it has set itself the following tasks:

  • promoting human rights in all their forms;
  • supporting vulnerable orphans and destitute children
  • supporting malnourished children
  • promoting education for all;
  • providing school, food and health support to needy children
  • building or renovating school buildings
  • building resource centres for students, especially in remote areas
  • building public latrines in communities and near schools
  • building health centres;
  • providing clean water to communities through the construction of water wells;
  • Provide health care to vulnerable populations, especially in remote areas;
  • raise awareness of behavioural changes, especially in the area of health;
  • training young people in entrepreneurship and guiding them towards promising sectors;
  • supporting women in the creation and management of income-generating activities
  • granting micro-credits to women
  • provide training to economic interest groups and agri-food cooperatives on the best production techniques
  • granting credit to agri-food cooperatives;
  • organising literacy courses for the elderly and adults
  • accompanying refugees;
  • developing income-generating activities;
  • supporting young people who have dropped out of school in their professional training;
  • fighting against sexual violence...
