Action When is an NGO found on the mainland of Tanzania,East Africa.It was started so as to provide parental love ,care protection and guidance to the orphaned children whose orphan hood has been created due to HIV/AIDS pandemic as the main cause and poverty as a whole.Such children need some one who will care,defend,guidance,love,listen and educate them so as to make life meaningful and bearable through provision of basic needs.

The initiators and co-initiators noted that there are many desperate and vulnerable children due to HIV/AIDS pandemic as well as high levels of poverty.A solution was reached to assist such children and their respective families through empowering them with knowledge and skills,both formal and informal so as to enable them acquire literacy skills for self reliance,creativity and talent development/discovery to alleviate poverty.

The formation of ACTION WHEN was in 1991 but had no proper documentation and no recognition as it was a youth group with the name "meet and act".that came up to do with a voluntary work.The Group would meet twice a month and their main activity was charitable work through use of physical strength to support the elderly,widows and orphans.

The defining moment was on the 28th of July 2006 with the name ACTION WHEN,with a literall meaning of when should we Act to alleviate poverty?It is now fully revived with the pimary goal of empowering the already empowered such as people registered in Groups or CBOs( fully registered with the District of Muleba) Action When hopes to fight gainst the idea of dependency for example,it will not work for people say:digging for them but,it will give them knowledge and skills,technical advice thus enhancing their personal ability to work(sel reliance)
