Mission Statement

The Organization's mission is to promote and enhance the capabilities of children, youth and women in Africa to effect positive social change that would bring about development in their lives and communities.

Description

AID is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington, USA to Support Development in Africa. We advocate for the rights of humanity and render services for the holistic development of people and their communities.

Our main targets are Children, Youth, Women and minority groups because of the many challenging issues surrounding their growth and developments, especially in this part of the world where women, youth and children continue to face violence and abuse in their daily lives.

In a world where competition is high and the battle for survival is tough, and the available resources are limited despite the many raw materials with which the continent is endowed with, AID seeks to Educate and Advocate for equal access to opportunities regardless of gender, tribe or race and further provide relevant services for the survival and development of Africa.

A s we seek to promote human development holistically by tackling poverty through advocacy and service delivery at community, local and national levels, the organization does have several programs through which it has designed methods and strategies to reach its target beneficiaries at all levels.
