AAPDEP in Motion!

AAPDEP in Motion!


For a while now the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project’s (AAPDEP) website has left something to be desired.  A little over a month ago we took on the task of rejuvenating the look and feel of the site. The new and improved site gives you updates to our existing projects, notification of new projects, information on our upcoming convention and fundraising banquet and the many ways you can help with AAPDEP projects.  We encourage you to come by and take a look.

New Local Committees

Stop by our News page to learn more about AAPDEP’s recent consolidation of a local committee, in Oakland.  AAPDEP Oakland’s first task is to begin work on a community garden at the Uhuru House location.  This garden will serve the African community by creating avenues of learning about gardening, but to also be a source of healthy foods. Join the team by contacting Oakland@developmentforafrica.org

AAPDEP D.C. is in the making with plans to begin membership and information meetings in the coming weeks.  Future projects would be to work within D.C. Metro neighborhoods to start community gardens.  Also, there are future plans to conduct workshops on rain water harvesting, basic gardening, Permaculture, etc. There will also be a drive for talented individuals to donate some of their works thru the Arts for AAPDEP Campaign on the local and national levels.  To be a part of the initial stages contact d.c.@developmentforafrica.org

AAPDEP St. Petersburg, through the African Village Survival Initiative (AVSI), is working to bring sustainable workshops to the community with the most recent one happening on Oct. 24, 2009 on Medicinal Herbs. Contact info@developmentforafrica.org for more information.

Department of Info and Ed

The AAPDEP organization is also excited about the consolidation of the Info and Ed Department. Although this department is still growing it is responsible for making AAPDEP a household name by placing the adage Africans for Africans: Self Determination in the forefront of everyone’s mind.

Sierra Leone

Major milestones happening on the ground in Sierra Leone where AAPDEP will be launching the Oloshoro Fishing project in November 2009.  We’ve reached one of our goals to equip a boat in the village with a motor. This will not only enable the local people to  be able to go out further and catch more fish to bring back to the community for sustenance but is also as a means to create economic sustainability for their community.  More boat motors are needed to equip other boats in the community. If you want to donate a motor or know how we can obtain one please contact donate@developmentforafrica.org

There is work in progress to address the alarming rate of Infant and Maternal Mortality. At least one in eight women dies during pregnancy or childbirth, in Sierra Leone. This is one of the highest death rates in the world. Through AACESH (AAPDEP African Corps of Engineers Scientist and Healthcare workers), we are initiating projects that will give training to local health care constituents who have committed to serve their communities to combat this preventable phenomenon.  Plans are underway for birthing centers to be built within local communities to make basic healthcare accessible. Details on this progression of this project will be posted on our website soon!
