OUR ANNUAL TARGETS
Complete 100+ community projects
Change 100,000+ children’s lives
Mr Moses Tai – founder of African Development Choices – grew up in Huruma Estate, Eldoret Town, Uasin Gishu County in Kenya and asked why, in the community of 100,000, there has never been a playground for children even though it would cost less than 1% of the annual development expenditure in the county?
The answer: Leaders make poor development decisions without consulting the communities and communities have low expectations of what can be achieved due to lack of precedence so there is lack of effective citizen participation.
AN INNOVATIVE NEW APPROACH TO DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
African Development Choices (ADC) is a non-profit organisation working to improve the well-being of communities living in poverty in Africa, especially children. We do this by championing increased access to essential public services such as clean water, adequate sanitation, and child-friendly facilities like playgrounds.
We believe that mismanagement of local resources by leaders in Africa leads to lack of access to essential public services, which exacerbates poverty. We also believe that the opposite of poverty is not income; the opposite of poverty is dignity. And providing access to essential public services safeguards the dignity of communities living in poverty.
Our innovative Three-Step Approach to development empowers local communities and leaders in Africa to manage local resources and meet local needs independently. Better management of local resources leads to increased access to essential public services, which in turn reduces poverty.
