Mission Statement

To create partnerships with Civil Society and other organizations to engage with the Governments and International Development Agencies (IDAs) to develop and implement innovative Social Protection strategies and pro­grammes that make a difference in people’s lives in Africa.

As the Social Protcetion agenda continues to grow, the Africa Platform for Social Protection

(APSP) is looking to build its network and continuously engage more actors from different countries across the African continent. This engagement will allow further penetration into the grassroots and more importantly have a concerted effort that is harmonised by the APSP through its local affiliates. We believe this will enable National Platforms draw from other platforms exchanging best practices and tapping into the resource pool that APSP has at its disposal. In this respect APSP has come up with guidlines that inform the establishment of a National Platform.

Rules of Affiliation for Platform Members

The Africa Platform for Social Protection (APSP), has put together an Affiliations Manual for Platform Members. This document which can be downloaded here, stipulates regulations towards membership, members conduct, obligations and responsibilities once individuals and groups (Civil Society Organisations) chose to become members. The document can be read together with the Guildines for Establishing a National Social Protection Platform to better illustrate what is expected of members once they join the Africa Platform. These two documents outline how to go about establishing a Social Protection Platform, how to become members of APSP and the onus upon the members with regards to carrying out their mandate
