About ADPP Angola
ADPP is an Angolan non-governmental association, which started its activities in 1986 and was officially registered with the Ministry of Justice in 1992, and with IPROCAC in 2015. All of ADPP’s activities are built on four pillars:
- The conviction that education for all is the key to development.
- A community-based perspective that seeks to empower individuals, families and communities to make positive changes in their own lives.
- A recognition of government as a key player in promoting long-term sustainable development, and close working relationships with local, provincial and national government partners.
- An integrated, holistic approach to development that applies a ‘whole community’ philosophy to link activities in education, health and community development in order to achieve maximum impact.
ADPP is headed by a Board of Directors, elected by the general assembly. ADPP’s work is financially supported by a wide variety of partners including national and local government, private companies, UN and other international organizations and overseas governments. ADPP’s projects receive institutional support from relevant ministries, including the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Families and Promotion of Women and the Ministry of Agriculture, and from authorities at provincial, municipal and local level.
All ADPP’s projects are subject to an annual external audit, carried out to international standards by Ernst and Young.
ADPP Angola is co-founder and member of the Federation for Associations connected to the International Humana People to People Movement, a membership network for organizations working with long-term, sustainable development. Members are independent national associations, whose work is based on keen knowledge of the needs and development potential of the communities where they are situated.
