What are Action10 governance and legal structure?
Action10 is a non-profit organisation registered in Sweden, 100% volunteer-driven. Action10 operates under the umbrella of Human Rights & Science (HR&S), which manages the operations abroad and backs Action10 up with institutional support.
Action10´s highest governance body is the General Assembly. The members are the volunteer staff and the monthly givers. A working board is in charge of the management, and the operations are handled by volunteer staff organized into three workgroups:
- Evaluation planning (EP) & Sustainable economy (SE)
- Knowledge sharing (KS)
- Quality values (QV) & Institutional capacity (IC)
The Action10 mandate is the ActionInvest programme, which provides loans and coaching to social entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
