WE ARE AN AFRICAN FOUNDED AND LED ORGANIZATION 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.
TOGETHER, WE CAN CHANGE LIVES.
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. Adeso is a registered non-profit organization in Kenya, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the USA, and a registered charity in England & Wales (no. 1131711).
Adeso, formerly known as Horn Relief, is an expanding and vibrant African-based international development and humanitarian organization. We assist communities to help them realize their full potential, working alongside them to create facilitative environments in which they can thrive. Our belief that economic, social and environmental security is the bedrock of a healthy community drives the nature and intent of our programming. We work to prevent and overcome situations that adversely affect community well-being by reinvigorating the economy, developing skills for life and work, providing developmental assistance, and influencing policy.
For the past 20 years we have strengthened rural livelihoods through environmental awareness, training, technology transfer and innovative humanitarian projects in pursuit of a peaceful, self-reliant, and greener future. Currently, Adeso implements programs in Somalia, Kenya and South Sudan. Adeso is an exciting and dynamic organization experiencing managed rapid growth. It offers sound employment conditions with opportunities for personal growth and development.
