Mission Statement

To empower changemakers to break the cycle of poverty

About This Cause

Action on Poverty (AOP) is an international aid organisation that helps companies define their social purpose, give back to their communities, and engage their employees and customers in meaningful change.

AOP connects corporates with developing communities in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific to together break the cycle of entrenched poverty. Our corporate partners have built schools in Vietnam, renovated women's shelters in Cambodia, and constructed farming facilities in Ethiopia.

Our projects help communities live with dignity and security, working across a wide range of issues including food security, health, water, sanitation, livelihoods, gender equality, climate change, social accountability, and education. By addressing the underlying causes of poverty, we create pathways for long-term change. We also strive to ensure the benefits of development are shared equally, especially among vulnerable groups such as women and ethnic minority groups.

We are a secular, independent NGO that is fully accredited with the Australian Government, the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
