Actions for Development and Empowerment (ADE), a non-profit, grassroots, and youth-driven organization founded in 2019 with the aim of empowering young people to act around issues that affect their lives and play an active role in the development process thereby creating positive change in their communities and Africa at large. ADE’s work also focuses on redressing the absence of avenue citizens, especially youth to hold government accountable to its service-delivery obligations through informed demands. To achieve its vision and missions, ADE undertakes action-oriented research, administrative and legal assistance, and advocacy for the effective implementation of regulations and law and policy reforms.

ADE believes that it can grow to provide a platform and civic space where young people set the agenda and brainstorm on the issues that affect education, employment and job creation in Africa and propose young people tailored solutions with capacity building, partnership and advocacy as key drivers.
ADE focuses on three thematic areas:

  • Democracy and Governance
  • Sustainable Development Goals Education
  • Girls’ Child Education


We envision a world where all people – even in the most remote areas of Africa are equipped and inspired to improve their livelihood and realize the future they want.
