General

  • Mission:
  • ACEDI's strives to be a development partner of choice for the poor women, men, boys and girls and their organization in empowering and giving them voice to ensure their inclusion, participation and benefit in the development agenda at household, family, community, national and international levels.

  • History:
  • Africa Community Empowerment and Development Initiatives(ACEDI) was started by a group of professionals in 2008 in order to bring meaningful changes in the lives of the most marginalized group of society, pastoralists and other minorities, children and women who have no voices and are excluded from development, through research, advocacy and empowerment programmes. Its founders were encouraged by the African Union’s (AU) decisions as reflected in the preamble of the AU Constitutive Act, Article 3(a), (g) (h) (k), and Article 22 to engage CSOs in the development, strengthening, and operationalization of the AU at all levels; but particularly concerned about the ubiquitous capacity weaknesses of CSOs in attempts to partner with government in development programmes especially for indigenous civil society organization at the district and grassroots level. ACEDI is an organization committed to strengthening nonprofit organizations communities and community groups by strengthening their governance structures, methods of community engagement, public outreach and coalition building and organization. ACEDI’s work is grounded in a fundamental belief and philosophy that people and community led processes are critical to organizational success and community development
