AAPDEP’s First Ever Facebook Town Hall is a Success!

On December 16, 2015, the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) held a Facebook Town Hall entitled “What does sustainable development in Africa look like”.  The panelist were Dr. Aisha Fields, International Director of AAPDEP; Omowale Kefing, Chair of Houston AAPDEP and Yejide Orunmila,  Information and Education Director of AAPDEP.

We asked questions about China in Africa,  charity and foreign aid, and about some setbacks we've experienced as an organization.

The panelist gave phenomenal answers which speaks to why having an African-led development organization is so powerful.  We won’t ever give up; not on our people.
