Advocacy Initaitive for Development (AID)

Transforming Lives & Communities!

Our Focus

We render services for the holistic development of people and their communities. We are also promoting equal access to opportunities regardless of gender, tribe, or race.

Women, Youth, and Children are our main targets because of the many challenging issues surrounding their growth and development, especially in Africa where women and children continue to face violence and abuse in their daily lives.

  • Promoting human rights education at all levels
  • Advocating for and protecting the rights of women and addressing the challenges they face in their homes and communities
  • Empowering youth through education, skills development, and entrepreneurship opportunities
  • Supporting the education and health care of less privileged children

Our Thematic Focus

Youth Empowerment

The goal of this program is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, and strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope for the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. We believe that young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best efforts and reinforces personal respect. Through this program, AID seeks to advocate and create meaningful employment opportunities for youths with special emphasis on the less privileged and young women.

Women's Empowerment

The program is designed to address the challenges women face in their homes & communities and to protect their rights at all levels. We are also empowering them through life skills training opportunities and basic management skills. The program also seeks to raise awareness against all forms of Abuse against Women.

Child Welfare

The program seeks to promote and support child education and health care services. According to recent studies, nine out of the ten worst countries for newborns (neo-natal mortality rates per thousand live births in 2012) are from Africa, including Sierra Leone, Somalia, Guinea-Bissau, Angola, Lesotho, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Central African Republic, and Côte d’Ivoire. Half of these countries were affected by conflict. To help tackle such a huge challenge in the continent, the organization seeks to advocate for and support the promotion of breastfeeding, neonatal resuscitation, kangaroo mother care for pre-term babies, and the prevention and treatment of infections. We also promote campaigns against all forms of abuse against children.

Don't decrease the goal. Increase the effort!
