Know More About Us

AID is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered in Washington State, USA to support programs in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially in Africa. The organization is in Special Consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN)

We render services for the holistic development of people and their communities. We promote equal access to opportunities regardless of gender, tribe, religion, 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.

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, especially in Africa, AID seeks to advocate for equal access to opportunities regardless of gender, tribe, or race.

As 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/approaches to reach its target beneficiaries at all levels. More information on our specific programs can be found on the Programs page of this site.

Key Targets
  • Women
  • Children
  • Youth
  • PLWD (People Living With Disabilities)
  • Marginalized Groups


We envisage an African society where its citizens can freely exercise their rights without fear or discrimination as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights and are also able to live a dignified life free from poverty and disease.


The Organization seeks to promote human rights education and enhance the capabilities of women, children and youth across Africa to effect positive social change that would bring about sustainable development in their lives and communities.


Our experience across different programs and our understanding of the various mediums of advocacy and service delivery provide us with valuable implementation advantages, which help both our staff and beneficiaries achieve consistency across all programs. Our aims and objectives are as follows:

    • To promote Human Rights issues.
    • To help youth and women without basic or no education at all, acquire vocational and practical skills to enable them to become self-reliant.
    • To promote the use of Information & Communications Technologies (ICTs) for sustainable development.
    • To promote and organize campaigns against the spread of HIV/AIDS and other health issues.
    • To provide education to poor and disadvantaged children.
    • To promote Democracy and Good Governance.
    • To promote and organize campaigns against Corruption.
    • To complement the efforts of governments, NGOs, and other agencies in producing mature, disciplined, and responsible citizens.
    • To organize and promote programs, activities, services, and projects that gear towards promoting tolerance, nonviolence, and peace.
    • To establish, maintain and engage in any and lawful activities relative to the purposes for which this organization was formed.
    • To accept donations, and contributions, to invest and reinvest any funds on hand, to use the income and proceeds thereof for the advancement of the purposes for which this organization was formed.

Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life. It's about what you inspire others to do.

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.
