About 2/2 /Background: … The ACTION Support Centre was initially established in 2002 on the basis of a mandate to set up a communications hub for the network members of ACTION global. 

It has since transformed itself into a regional and continental base for organizations working in the fields of conflict and development. Through a focus on mobilization, building organizations, advocacy, facilitating training and initiating innovative forms of capacity building it has built a strong network movement that amplifies the voices of communities and links them to policy makers at different levels. With regional bases in Cambodia, Guatemala, South Africa and Serbia, ACTION members throughout the world are committed to the following broad vision, mission and values as they carry out strategies developed in response to local conditions.
