About US:

Africa Development Promise (ADP) is a US based international non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives and livelihoods of rural women in East Africa through training and resources that support their collective efforts to operate competitively in the marketplace. With offices in Rwanda and Uganda, ADP works with rural women who rely on subsistence farming for food security and employment. ADP's primary goal is to move them from growing food for subsistence to food for business using the cooperative model of enterprise.

As a result, ADP has launched a vocation program that offers computer literacy, sewing workshops, and business training to cooperative and community members.
