On March 1st, Speak Up Africa New York, a leading advocacy organisation focused on universal access to healthcare and education for the world’s most vulnerable families, announced its organisation’s new name, The Access Challenge. The name change reflects the group’s mission to ensure that every person —wherever in the world they may be—has access to basic tools and services in order to survive and thrive. Speak Up Africa New York focused its efforts on Africa. The Access Challenge will continue this Africa-based work while expanding to other regions with a focus on high-level policy engagement.

AIO has worked in partnership with Speak up Africa for the past 6 years across the continent of Africa and is aligned to continue implementing programmes with the institution under its new name. We produced a visual introduction for the world to meet The Access Challenge and we have to say, we are very excited to be a part of the story and be drivers of long term sustainable change.
