    Adeso is a humanitarian and development organization that is changing the way people think about and deliver aid in Africa. We are an NGO in Africa working in a very different way than most. We believe that development must come from within, not outside African communities. That it is Africans themselves who must determine Africa’s future, and that while international aid has provided much-needed support, it often falls short of enabling lasting change at grassroots level. We want to change this, and our strong bonds with African communities mean we are uniquely placed to do so. Our mission is to work at the roots of communities to create environments in which Africans can thrive. Working alongside African communities to co-create a new story for Africa-a future that is shaped by their values, powered by their own resourcefulness and built on their capabilities.
