African Monitor (AM) was founded in 2006 as an independent Pan African continental body to monitor development commitments, delivery, and the impact on grassroots communities. AM is registered as a not-for-profit organisation in South Africa with Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) Status.
The Organisation works towards bringing strong additional African voices to the development agenda, by making sure that citizens have the capacity, platforms, and opportunity to participate in decision-making processes. Its vision is of an African continent rapidly achieving its development potential, whose people live in dignity, in a just society where basic needs are met, human rights are upheld, and good governance is entrenched. AM focuses on mobilising the grassroots to be at the centre of development policy and practice.
