WHAT GUIDES US
There is no silver bullet to addressing poverty and inequality. At the heart of our work, is our appreciation of community organising and activism. DAG is not the mouthpiece of the poor and do not speak on their behalf, but support a holistic relational approach to development.
We believe the most effective solutions to poverty and inequality is for citizens and community groups to lead their own developments

We are driven by idealism and passion that change in an urban environment is possible.
