By working to positively impact on the lives of African people through increased access to clean water and electricity, nutritious food, decent sanitation, healthcare and the like, AAPDEP seeks to contribute to its partner organization's efforts to organize the masses of African people into a process that will forward the social transformation necessary to end once and for all the suffering and poverty which has been imposed on Africans throughout the world.
AAPDEP organizes the highly trained and skilled sector of the African population whose expertise has historically served the colonial governments wherever they are located to instead use their skill to transform the dismal condition of Africa and African communities the world over. It is designed to train and empower Africans where its projects are implemented to maintain and duplicate the programs that are developed. This approach to our work puts African people on a trajectory toward self-determination and is in complete opposition to the charity model adopted by most other organizations.
AAPDEP's technical volunteers are known as the African Corps of Engineers, Scientists & Healthcare Workers (ACESH). ACESH members are Africans based throughout the world who commit their time, expertise and resources toward addressing the technical questions associated with AAPDEP projects.
AAPDEP is calling on all those who unite with our mission to donate
to our current development projects in Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone!
