(Unverified non-profit organisation)

AID is a 501©(3) non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington, USA and Sierra Leone to Support Development Initiatives in Africa. The organization is in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the UN.

​In a world where competition is high and the battle for survival is tough, and the available resources are limited despite the many raw materials with which the African continent is endowed with, AID seeks to Advocate for and provide equal access to opportunities regardless of gender, tribe or race and further provide relevant services for the development of people and their communities.

​AID is also registered as an NGO in Sierra Leone. We advocate for the rights of humanity and render services for the holistic development of people and their communities.

​Our main targets are Children, Youth, Women and minority groups because of the many challenging issues surrounding their growth and developments, especially in this part of the world where women, youth and children continue to face violence and abuse in their daily lives.
