About ADPP Mozambique
ADPP believes that development is, above all, about people, and when they are respected, they increase their capabilities and become the force driving the changes they intend to make.
ADPP’s mission is to support all people to work together for a better future. This better future is one where everyone has the ability to pursue their choices and dreams and realize their full potential.
ADPP, Development Aid From People to People is a Mozambican Organisation working in the areas of quality educa-tion, health and wellbeing, and environment and sustainable agriculture.
During its 36-year existence, ADPP has remained true to its mission of promoting the social and economic develop-ment of the most vulnerable people in society giving special attention to children, orphans, women and girls.
During 2018 ADPP employed 2,900 people in 60 projects in all provinces of the country, with an emphasis on teacher training, food security and the prevention and care of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis patients. Each year the projects benefit more than 2.5 million Mozambicans. To achieve the goals reached in 2018, ADPP counted on the work of a team of volunteers composed of 17,800 men and women.
ADPP works in alignment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as adopted by the Govern-ment of Mozambique. We work to eradicate poverty in Mozambique (SDG1) by contributing to the achievement of universal primary education (SDG4) through the establishment of community schools and teacher training pro-grammes; ending hunger (SDG2) by improving food security in rural areas through Farmers’ and Producers’ Clubs; and, improve health and wellbeing (SDG3) through our epidemic control programmes (tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS), as well as to combat Malaria and malnutrition in vulnerable groups, with special emphasis on girls and women in vul-nerable situations (SDG5).
All ADPP Programmes are based on the belief that true change happens in people’s hearts and minds, in their interac-tion with others, and in the social and cultural context of a given community. Our holistic and inclusive approach im-proves the overall wellbeing of communities that are always at the centre of their own development. The central role given to people in the development process is one of ADPP’s core humanitarian values.
Humana People to People
The Humana People to People Federation is a network of 30 non-profit associations involved in solidarity, cooperation and international development.
Born from a progressive education movement in the 1970s, Humana People to People has, at its roots, a commitment to address some of the world’s major humanitarian, social and environmental challenges. It works as a collective, supporting people to make changes, improve their lives and help solve the problems they face.
The Federation of Associations linked to the International Humana Movement People to People was formed in 1996 by the then 16 national associations in Europe and Africa to strengthen cooperation and the impact of their work. Today, the Humana People to People Federation has 30 independent member associations on all five continents.
These members share a set of values to protect the planet, develop communities and support people to join forces and thus increase their potential for positive change and action. These values are also shared by the numerous international partners who supported this work in 2018.
In 2018, Humana People to People jointly carried out 1,134 projects centred on the themes of sustainable agriculture and the environment, community development, health, education and, finally, the sale of second-hand clothing.
The UN Agenda 2030 continues to guide the activities of Humana People to People and its members, and together with the international community and global leaders, we will continue our efforts to help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in hope of alleviating suffering and creating lasting positive changes for the world’s population.
