Advanced Development for Africa (ADA)
Since its establishment and incorporation in 2008 as a pan-African non-profit organization, Advanced Development for Africa (ADA) has focused on sustainable development programs and projects to bring about innovative solutions in Africa to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
ADA’s expertise and services, combined with its unparalleled conveying platform, has enabled ADA to play a critical function in accelerating progress towards achieving MDGs in Africa particularly in health and education and improving the lives of women and children across the continent. Technology is a key component of any development effort and ADA’s mission aims to empower African women through the creative use of information and communications technologies (ICTs).
With operational offices located in Mali, the centerpiece of West Africa, ADA seeks to accomplish its mission through proven methods of capacity building, technology transfer, forums, and cross cutting-sector partnerships that move towards achieving the MDGs.
ADA's activities include:
• Using technology to scale up projects’ implementation and maximize returns by bringing in ADA partners from specific sectors to provide tools that are currently in use in electronic and mobile health.
• Empowering women through the training of local scientists and health workers currently working in maternal health, Tuberculosis (TB), and HIV cases through the creation of forums for collaboration and communication between organizations from different regions within Africa.
• High level advocacy, by holding meetings and conferences that bring together influential leaders who can impact the focus, funding, and knowledge sharing necessary for the success of ADA.
• Identifying successful pilot programs pertaining to MDGs 4, 5 and 6 and the documentation of best practices from these projects.
