War on Want NI's vision is a world where everyone has access to the resources they need to achieve their full potential. Its mission is to alleviate poverty by working in partnership with organisations representing poor communities in developing countries, and challenging the systems that keep them poor.

Company description
What we do in Africa: War on Want NI works in partnership with local Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Community Based Organisations (CBOs) in Uganda and Malawi on poverty reduction programmes that address the communities' core issue of sustainable livelihood through productive agriculture, livestock and micro finance projects. We work with the most disadvantaged groups of people to find practical and lasting solutions to overcome extreme poverty and bring about positive changes in their lives. Central to our work is a comprehensive programme that builds the capacity of our local partners increasing their effectiveness, strenghtening their governance and ensuring their sustainability.
What we do at home: We increase public awareness of the causes and effects of poverty through advocacy campaigns and working in partnership with other International Development Charities to challenge the global systems that keep people poor. We raise funds through our network of shops, individual donors, schools and companies as well as from statutory funders and organisations to support our programme work.
