The ANC is a national liberation movement. It was formed in 1912 to unite the African people and spearhead the struggle for fundamental political, social and economic change.
The ANC's key objective is the creation of a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.
This means the liberation of Africans in particular and black people in general from political and economic bondage. It means uplifting the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor.
The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.

The African National Congress (ANC) would like to clarify a matter relating to a contribution that was proposed by the ANC NEC Sub-Committee on Education and Health that recipients of State loans which have been converted to bursaries, should make a contribution by ploughing back to the bursary fund in order to benefit other needy students going forward.
We want to clarify that this was not a firm recommendation, safe-to-say that the Commission agreed that this recommendation needs to be considered in future. To this extent, no consideration has been made by the Sub-Committee or the ANC on this recommendation.
