Love for Humanity and Nature

African Alliance for Developmental Action(AADA)

African Alliance for Developmental Action (AADA) is a non-governmental organization that believes that everything is possible through love and service for others, love for self, love for knowledge and love for nature.

We believe that everything is possible through love and service for others, love for self, love for knowledge and love for nature. According to this philosophy, we envision a world in which all individuals are driven by acceptance and generosity to assist in the sustainable global fight against poverty, hunger, disease as well as against mismanagement of natural resources and the threat of our environment. Its main office is found in Cameroon precisely in Biyem-Assi-Yaounde. 

WE LOVE WORK

Our mission

AADA’s main mission is ” to encourage positive growth and alleviate poverty”. This will be done in both rural and urban areas by training local communities on the sustainable management and valorization of forest and plant resources. valorization here means to train them on how to transform forest and plant resources into other useful economic materials and generate income.  

WE ARE PASSIONATED

Our vision

AADA’s vision is “a world without misery”. This is intended to be achieved through the careful exploitation natural resources in general and forest and plant resources in particular. This will go a long way to reduce poverty, hunger and also diseases which are caused by environmental degradation.

PROJECTS ON THE NEWSLINE

Solar tunnel dryer for fish drying

Reduction of carbon emission

In Limbe as well as in other coastal communities in Cameroon, processing/ drying the fresh fish from the sea is an important industry. Dry fish can be traded in all parts of Cameroon and is an important ingredient for many Cameroonian dishes. Traditionally, the fish is smoked on long ovens inside of smoking huts. The process takes around 3 days and involves a lot of work as the fish has to be arranged carefully and turned periodically. Rubber wood and Mangrove wood is fired on with rubber and petrol to get the drying process started.
AADA has now found a way to make the fish drying process healthier and more sustainable but without losing the high level of quality with the technology of a solar tunnel dryer.
