Focus of PSAf work

We work to ensure that information is effectively used to foster development by empowering communities to shape their own agenda. We particularly focus on amplifying the voices of the poor and marginalized. We do this through:

how it all started

PSAf was founded in 1996 as a branch of Panos London, and became an autonomous institution in May 2005. Our regional office is located in Lusaka, Zambia, and our satellite offices are in Johannesburg, South Africa, and Maputo, Mozambique. PSAf works in 12 Southern African nations, namely, Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. PSAf is part of a Global Network of independent and autonomous Panos Institutes based in London, Paris, Canada, South Asia, Eastern Africa, West Africa, and the Caribbean
