I am a Primary School teacher and CEO of a Nail Company. Graduating from university with a First Class Honours and gaining an award for volunteering my time to the community has inspired me to join ADC. In my free time, I enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures, shopping and going to the gym. Being a teacher, I understand the need to improve the well-being of children and communities in Africa by championing an increase access to essential public services. I am excited to be part of this organisation and empower communities and leaders in Africa.
My name is Aliza and I am a Fundraising Volunteer at African Development Choices. I am currently a final-year student at Royal Holloway University of London studying Politics and International Relations, and aspire to spread awareness on the importance of human rights and social justice around the world. Hence, it has become a personal goal of mine to use my voice to help create positive change whenever I can. I am proud to be part of a team that I whole-heartedly believe can, and will, empower African communities and leaders to independently manage their local resources and meet their local needs.
I decided to join ADC since I wanted to offer my support to people without basic access to services and fighting for life everyday. I was completely inspired by ADC mission to help local communities better use their own resources. As a result I felt very enthusiastic and passionate about this objective and I am totally sure that together we can make the difference. In my current job I work as an hr advisor . In my spare time I enjoy running , playing tennis, watching sports in general especially football. I also love reading and hanging out with friends.
I joined ADC primarily because of its unique approach to development. It's three-pronged approach is capable of creating a conducive environment for sustainable development in African countries. The fact that Moses, the founder was born and bred in the types of communities we wish to work in also means that ADC stands out from other development charities. I am a student as SOAS studying African Politics and I look forward to using the knowledge and skills gained from my studies in helping ADC move forward and reach its goals.
I wanted to use my skills and CIPD qualification to give something back and when i read about ADC and saw that they were looking for a HR volunteer, i knew i would be helping a charity that i believe can really make a difference to the children and communities of Africa, this makes me very happy. I am a Retail Store Manager with over 9 years of management experience. I adore spending time with my fiance, family, friends and my cat Indie. I am also a huge fan of music and enjoy music festivals and shows. I adore reading too, anything and everything.
The mission of African Development Choices to develop elementary school and community deeply touched my heart. It was one of my dream to help needy children and provide them what they deserve for their growth and better life. By profession I am attorney, and worked as Legal Secretary, Legal Assistant and HR Assistant but its my pleasure to join ADC team and be a part of such a remarkable mission. In my free time I love to do meditation, art and spend time with my Children. I also enjoy reading and play badminton.
I joined ADC because of the close ties my family has with Africa. My father and mother were in the Peace Corps and were married there. Many of the problems they worked on then are still present in Africa today. I wanted to continue the tradition of giving back to Africa. I am currently a student studying at the University of Washington. My background is working at high tech firms in the Seattle area. Outside of volunteering and studying, I like to read classic novels and watch films.
I was attracted to the Nyansakia Primary School project in Kenya, and ADCs emphasis on accountability, community awareness and grassroots development in its three-step process. I recently completed an MPhil in Education, International Development and Globalisation. The quality of education in the Global South is of particular interest to me. In my thesis titled 'Tower of Babel: educating a linguistically diverse Nigeria' I investigated the Language of Instruction (LoI) used in primary schools in Abuja, Nigeria. In my spare time, I enjoy attending academic talks, reading and creative writing.
I joined ADC because it challenges how aid should be delivered. Having previously worked in the development sector, ADC’s “three-pronged approach” provides an innovative reimagining of developmental approaches which I feel has the potential to implement lasting change in our programme countries. I am a recent graduate in International Cooperation, with an interest in WASH.
I've joined ADC because i'm passionate about helping people and I have the need to give something back. I believe the world can be a better place and everyone deserve having equal opportunities. I am a Behaviour Change Executive - I'm developing and implementing social marketing strategies to promote sustainability across various communities. In the last couple of years I've got interested in graphic design and in my free time I'm working on small projects that allow me to further develop my skills in this field. Apart from this, I love travelling and exploring new countries and cultures. I'm also a huge film and music fan.

I am a recent Psychology Graduate, having gained interest in HR over the last 2 years and spent some years in voluntary work across charities, housing abroad and as an employment advisor for local residents within the Clapham Park Area. I'm excited to be apart of ADC and working towards its goals in Africa.
I wanted to help make a difference to the lives of those in need. Those without the basic necessities in life. When I read about ADC, their mission really touched me and inspired my enthusiasm to offer my services and join. I Volunteer in ADC’s HR Team which is great because for my full time occupation, I work as a HR Business Partner. In my spare time, I enjoy sprinting 100 meters and 200 meters as well as participating in marathons. I also teach English online to Chinese students aged 10 and below. I enjoy travelling around the world.
I founded ADC to improve the well-being of communities living in poverty in Africa, especially children, by championing increased access to essential public services such as clean water, adequate sanitation, and child-friendly facilities like playgrounds. As the founder, I am dedicating all my time to the fulfillment of ADC’s mission and objectives. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, a walk in the park and seaside, playing scrabble and ping pong, keeping fit, and staying up-to-date with current affairs.
The reason I joined ADC is because I love helping people so we can learn from each other's culture. Also, I love volunteering. For now, I am a full-time stay at home mom until my kids are grown enough to start school. In my free time, I love cooking, reading, watching movies, learning new things, walking, and going for bible studies.
I was inspired to join African Development Choices because of its mission and values in improving the well-being of children and communities in Africa. I am qualified as a Solicitor but work in the HR team as a HR volunteer. I also work as a volunteer case worker elsewhere helping people with employment law problems. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit, reading magazines, making cards and sewing.
I have always to wanted to volunteer to a charity in some capacity and when I saw what ADC commitments were to changing the lives of children in Africa it inspired me to join. I am a retail manager, every day is different and challenging! I love cars, and anything vintage. Vintage fashion, music and lifestyle. I also love animals and have 2 cats, 2 chinchillas and a tortoise.
My name is Sarah I am currently studying a MSc in development studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies. What inspired me to join ADC is their initiative on reinstalling a foundations for a basic livelihoods into rural communities in Africa. I have researched extensively into childhood and international development, it is these key years where offering as much a potential change shape the mindsets of individuals in underdeveloped communities. ADC has a clear vision of what they want to achieve and I enjoy working alongside likeminded people.
I decided to join ADC as I was drawn to the Three-Step Approach and the focus on transparency and empowering local communities within that. This is something which I find to be extremely important and often lacking in other development initiatives. I am currently doing an internship in Peru, leading groups of volunteers and managing development projects in primary schools. Outside of work and volunteering, I like to go on walks in the Yorkshire Dales with my border terrier and travel to new exciting places.
Hey I'm Taz and I've recently graduated from university with a First Class Joint Hons in Film & Screen Media and Media Arts, where my passion for videography and photography grew beyond my imagination. I've been wanting to use these skills to help in any way that I can and so I joined the ADC to help promote their good work. I believe everyone should strive to make the world a better place, even if it's by taking a small step and joining an organisation that is as passionate as the ADC. Small steps can lead to big changes; big changes can transform the world - that is key and that is what this team wishes to achieve and I most definitely want to be a part of it.
