Today, Africa is in the grip of an unprecedented crisis, heightened by the inability of homegrown African organizations to engage readily in the search for solutions to the continent’s problems. On a positive note, millions of displaced persons have been able to experience a voluntary, safe and dignified return home. However, with an estimated 22 million people remaining forcibly displaced across the continent, significant challenges remain. African in spirit, concept and composition, AHA is a pan-African non-governmental organization providing effective humanitarian assistance to alleviate human suffering building on the strength of African people to solve African problems. Hence, the paper outlines a transformational change in indigenous humanitarian capacity development directions towards addressing the root causes of forced displacement and human migration. The directional change entails addressing issues of human security that seeks to protect people against a broad range of threats to individuals and communities and, further, to empower them to act on their own behalf and to forge a global alliance against forced displacement.
Key words: transformational change, indigenous humanitarian capacity development
