Social Solutions for the Community

To empower the disadvantaged and the marginalized people in arid and semi-arid areas of Kenya by the end of the year 2030

African Social Development Focus

To alleviate poverty, reduce suffering and improve on the living standards of the disadvantaged and the marginalized groups in ASAL areas.


We strive to end poverty and promote human rights in the developing world. No easy task, but we’ve got the knowledge, passion and innovation to make a difference.


Education & Child Protection

Every child has the right to access safe and quality education. However, 131 million girls around the world are missing out on school, and girls are 50% more likely to lose the opportunity for education than boys.

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

ASDEF believe that water and sanitation is a major driver and catalyst of improving households’ incomes through food production, livestock keeping and environmental hygiene

Food, Nutrition & Health

Nutrition powers children to grow, develop and reach their potential and therefore ASDEF strives to provide nutritious food to the children in order to make the families and communities stronger. 

Governance, Peace &Security

We want to identify and create the demand for capacity strengthening both at county and national level by looking at; polices and legislation, accountability mechanisms, strategic planning, among others.

Disaster Risk Reduction & Climate Change

These programs are typically designed in response to humanitarian crises including natural disaster and man-made disaster.

Resilience Building & Livelihood

Natural disasters, climate change, conflicts and political instability have a negative impact on our communities. This makes development programs hard to implement.
