Adeso is a dynamic African-based organization with a 30-year history of community-driven development and environmentalism. Our vision is to create a world independent from aid, that relies on the resourcefulness of its people. We work to prevent and overcome situations that adversely affect community well-being through economic revitalization, skills development, humanitarian aid, and policy influence. We do this by promoting self-reliance, social justice, gender equality, environmental sustainability, and transformative innovations such as cash-based interventions, and community-led solutions to water and famine crises.

Adeso has successfully launched social enterprises and subsidiaries, such as Libin Investment Company Ltd, KujaLink, CORE and the NEAR Network, which each aim to build the ecosystem needed to confront the legacy of colonialism. Through this portfolio of solutions, we work to connect, design, launch, and scale the most promising innovations that will be a catalyst for community-led change. As a recognized leader in the global effort to decolonize the humanitarian and development aid system, Adeso leads coalitions working with civil society leaders, funders, INGOs, and aid agencies that are designed to shift power and resources to those most proximate to the world’s most urgent challenges.

Join us as we continue to build a better, more equitable, future for communities across Africa and beyond.
