The Access Initiative

The Poverty Reduction Forum Trust (PRFT) is a civil society organization which seeks to influence the formulation of ‘pro-poor’ policies by conducting research on poverty related issues and engaging with policy makers. PRFT promotes evidence based policy formulation and dialogue between policy makers, development partners, and civil society on issues of sustainable human development and poverty reduction. Additionally, PRFT works to mobilize and catalyze different civil society organizations to speak out against policies, strategies, and actions that hinder poverty reduction efforts or increase the vulnerability of people to become impoverished.
