Position description

The African Alliance was founded as a queer-led non-profit organisation in 2013 to provide a space where some of the continent’s best minds in the development and transformation space could come together to collaborate, strategise and collectively advance rights-based work with a shared understanding of our past, our present and our hopes for the future. Over the years, the work of Alliance has grown from being a consulting agency to a full-service non-profit with partnerships and networks globally with an equally diverse portfolio of work.

Our current portfolio includes work on COVID-19 research, advocacy and mobilisation, global and pan-African lobbying interventions and strategic partnership development to strengthen and amplify civil society voices working towards solutions to COVID-19 in one of the most unequal regions on earth. Our current operations include work in the SRHR, decolonization, TB, strategy development, advocacy, policy reform and research translation spaces.
