Developing People, Communities, Institutions and Nations in a Peaceful Environment

The African People Development Foundation (APDF) is a performance and result oriented development institution that is actively committed primarily to local development, particularly in the Niger Delta and North Central/Middle Belt regions of Nigeria.

As a professionalized service provider, APDF seeks very passionately to advance and promote sustainable livelihoods, and the overriding imperative for peace, good governance, poverty reduction and wealth creation in consonance with the concept of NEPAD: (New Economic Partnership for African Development) and the UN MDGs: (United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals). APDF is poised to be at the fore front of non state actors in driving this effort within the development community. As a local development driven and people centered Foundation (as implied in our name), APDF effectively commenced operations in 2006. Our primary goal is to promote good governance and peace, and to fight poverty in all its dimensions. APDF is very concerned not only of socio economic poverty but also poverty in terms of the grave destitution of knowledge and information resulting into weak capacity of local communities. The challenge to build the human capacity and improve the economic standards of the impoverished and less privileged people, mostly poor rural women, is a call to service for APDF, and this is part of the compelling motivation that had not just inspired but necessitated the emergence of our institution to engage in the delivery of strategic, innovative social services that can enrich and give meaning to life and put added value to initiatives and intervention programmes that are development driven and that have, in special focus, those poor and neglected women at the grass roots and those who work closely at that local level.
