Fahamu’s work is motivated by our desire to see a world where people organise to emancipate themselves from all forms of oppression, recognise their social responsibilities, respect each other’s differences, and realise their full potential.
OUR CORE VALUES
Pan-Africanism: a perspective, worldview and movement that rests on the idea of linked fate and common destiny of Africans globally and the need to unite themselves in order to combat all types of oppression.
Feminism: a political discourse and a social movement that sees patriarchal power as a primary axis of oppression in society. As such, gender equality and non-discrimination are mainstreamed throughout Fahamu’s work.
People-centred: people, not markets must drive the impetus for change. Fahamu holds a strong belief that the people most affected by systems of oppression, are the same people who must lead the struggle against those forces that oppress them.
Since 1997, we have been strengthening and nurturing the movements for social justice in Africa to ensure equality, freedom and justice for all.
