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 and Literacy

We aid communities to tackle various issues undermining the education industry. Through our education programs, students can get access to education, get relevant skills, and learn how to apply them in the future in their careers.

Water Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

ASDEF believe that access to WASH, in specific safe water, adequate sanitation, and proper hygiene education, can reduce illness and death, and also impact poverty reduction and socioeconomic development.

Health & Nutrition

Proper nutrition is a powerful good; people who are well nourished are more likely to be healthy, productive, and able to learn. Good nutrition benefits families, their communities and the world as a whole.

Governance and Advocacy

Good governance has been said at various times to entail: full respect of human rights, the rule of law, effective participation, multi-actor partnerships, and political pluralism

Promoting Peace and Security

To de-escalate the effects of violent extremism, we build resilient communities that withstand conflict shocks by up-scaling de-re-radicalization programs and providing alternative livelihood systems such as creative economies.

Environmental, Climate Change & Livelihood

The idea of climate change resilience requires greater attention to human livelihoods if it is to address the limits to adaptation strategies and the development needs of the poorest and most vulnerable people.
