Who we are

Published on 9 September 2008

Survie is a non-profit association which undertakes public-awareness campaigns and lobbies citizens and politicians for a reform of North-South relations and French policy in Africa.

It bases its activities on the right of every person to lobby their elected representative and to demand genuine control of political decisions in all domains.

The association has 1800 members and 21 local groups which lead its campaigns throughout France.

The association’s President is Odile Biyidi-Awala.

Survie’s commitment is based on one fact : Developmental problems and poverty in the countries of the Southern hemisphere are caused first and foremost by political decisions. It is therefore in the political domain that action must be taken.
