Review for Africa Development Promise, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

More women every day are getting impacted. They are involved in mushroom growing, maize, cassava and potato growing. The idea of scalability is at a center stage because at Africa Development Promise, building on what the women know is the driver of the Organisation. The programs have been scaled to more rural areas in Wakiso District like Sayi village. If you are working to support and empower rural women entrepreneurs to be able to reach economic independence in their communities and families, the answer is to join Africa Development Promise and support these women. “ with action many things can change”

Review for Africa Development Promise, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

If only in the whole world you need to see results from what you preach, its better to provide a conducive environment on what you preach. Africa Development Promise is really thinking out of the box, and the local community has been provided with a training center where the women will be gaining skills by going through different training sessions in empowering then with skills required to participate in profitable Agriculture.I love the works of this wonderful organisation because it has come up to empower the women. the problem of food,water and energy is discussed well through wonderful conferences organized and this nexus being part of the SMGs, gives Africa Development Promise an upper hand in preaching the gospel. Being an African and seeing how people specifically women suffer basing on their feminine nature at the expense of the male masculinity. to empower women is to open up their eyes and let them know that they can be part of the positive changes all communities need to achieve. Therefore with Africa Development Promise, Africa will move steps ahead and a hand will help to pus its cause.

Review for Africa Development Promise, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Africa Development Promise is a nonprofit organization working in East Africa to support rural women as the economic, demographic and social landscape is changing and affecting activities carried out by women. We champion the cooperative approach because of its principles of democracy, inclusion and solidarity - cooperatives empower members by promoting self-help and self-responsibility.

Muteesasira Tonny is my name, am volunteering with African Development Promise which started its activities way back in 2013, and indeed it has been a positive promise to me and the village women in Uganda particularly in my village Kifumbiro. ADP is basically up for empowering women in different areas majorly in Agriculture and focuses on economic independence of females. These women are trained on how to make agriculture an income generating activity, that will help them reduce on the poverty levels in their households and the community at- large. This has been manifested in growing mushrooms, which are being sold to different markets in Uganda and share the profits. this has contributed largely to the well-being of the women and it goes up to the whole members of their families. I personally am pursuing a masters in Development Practice at the University of Regis and i believe the skills i will learn here will impact a lot my village and my country Uganda. This has been possible because of the efforts of African Development Promise.

In the near future, the project is planning to extend power to the villages through the provision of solar panels. the solar panels will give light to those who have no access to adequate light, thus saving on daily purchases on fuel, candles and even making fire for light,
people will be able to charge their phones at at a reduce or no cost and farmers will probably use like to protect their animals from dangerous animals and bad people. Diversifying is also on the fore front where, there is need to practice different agricultural methods.

The project emphasizes more on self sustainability where at the project we believe in teaching people how to "own a fish pond and how to fish rather than providing fish for them".

For African Development Promise, East Africa will be fundamentally changed, particularly my country Uganda where everyone had given up on Agriculture.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would pray that, this idea extends to all African countries. since Agriculture is a major economic factor to look at.
