ACRA aims at removing poverty through sustainable, innovative solutions. The organization focuses on market-based solutions with high social and economic impact. In its development work in Africa, Central and Latina America, Asia and Europe, ACRA creates and strengthens social enterprise ventures as powerful agents of change. In the countries the organization works in, it strives to build and cultivate dynamic ecosystems for social innovation where social enterprise can grow. ACRA is a NGO with a long history; while in time ACRA has maintained a constant focus on four sectors: education, wash, natural resources management and energy, and food, in recent years the Foundation has undergone a profound change, in terms of instruments and approaches used to tackle poverty. We have shifted from traditional international development approach to one that sees inclusive business at the core of the change we want to help promote.
