ActionSA represents all South Africans who are determined to set our country free from the restraints of a broken political system and mend our painful past to build an inclusive, prosperous, non-racial and secure future for all its people.

We seek to unite the good, hard-working, law-abiding, community-oriented and freedom-loving people of our beloved nation behind the project of fixing South Africa.

The time for talking is over; to achieve our vision for an inclusive and prosperous South Africa, it is now time for action!

Our vision for an inclusive and
prosperous South Africa:

Imagine a future South Africa where our country is healed from its painful past. A South Africa defined by hope and prosperity, a country that its people are proud to call their home. A nation where race, gender, sexuality or any other demographic factors are no longer an indication of the barriers people are likely to face in life. All citizens live in dignity, with equal opportunities for upward mobility.

This is a South Africa that has reclaimed its position among the leading developing economies of the world. It has been freed from the grip of corruption, and is led by an ethical, competent and efficient government and civil service that puts the needs of residents ahead of their narrow political agendas.

In this South Africa led by ActionSA:

  • Our economy will be resilient and grow equitably, providing access to economic opportunity for all and allowing business to grow unimpeded by over-regulation. Inequality will be ever decreasing, and all South Africans will be genuine counterparts in a dynamic and vibrant economy.
  • A pro-poor government will deliver reliable basic services, quality healthcare, and sufficient social assistance to those in need so that our most marginalised and vulnerable people receive the assistance they require.
  • People will feel safe in their homes, knowing that the root causes of crime are addressed and that the South African Police Service is capable of protecting them. Everyone will be treated equally before the law, and crimes will be prosecuted fairly, without fear or favour.
  • Strong, healthy and caring communities will take care of each other and will partner effectively with government to provide social stability. We will respect and celebrate our diversity and all contribute our strengths towards building a brighter future for all.
  • Our people have access to quality education that empowers future generations by providing them with the skills required to live a life of their choosing – starting with a foundation phase education that empowers children to be life-long learners. 
  • All citizens will be empowered to exercise the full extent of their Constitutional rights and freedoms. Everyone will have access to reliable and affordable services such as water, sanitation, housing and healthcare.
  • Our people will be proud to call this place their home, and we will all live and work together in a spirit of ubuntu to ensure that our country keeps moving forward.  

Achieving this vision will take a concerted effort from leaders with a pragmatic, yet progressive, long-term plan to fix South Africa. ActionSA’s Solutions Blueprints is the roadmap to this vision, but we will be ready to share our detailed policy platforms with South Africa after our policy conference, to be held in the third quarter of 2023.

The South African Dream

What We Believe

Our Vision for South Africa is guided by our beliefs about our country, our people, our society, our economy and our political system.

South Africa is being held back
from reaching its potential:

South Africans are all too familiar with the many challenges we face – lawlessness, crumbling public infrastructure, persistent load-shedding, rampant unemployment, inequality and an education system that does not empower young people with the skills they need to succeed.

Our Vision for South Africa necessitates addressing the key constraints that prevent us from making progress toward an inclusive and prosperous future for all.

Our values and guiding principles:

Removing the key constraints to an inclusive and prosperous future for all South Africans requires that we are guided by non-negotiable values and principles. Accordingly, ActionSA’s core values and principles are aimed at giving effect to the rights and freedoms enshrined in the South African Constitution.

The ActionSA Policy Conference

ActionSA’s inaugural policy conference, where hundreds of delegates will come together from all nine provinces, to deliberate over a set of thought-provoking and inspirational solutions aimed at realising our South African Dream – ActionSA’s vision for an inclusive and prosperous South Africa, took place from 12 – 14 September.

Over the course of these three days, South Africans witnessed the most diverse and fastest-growing political party in the country, developing a solutions blueprint for their country.
