About Our Foundation
Action pour la Solidarité et le Développement known as ASODEV.
Founded in the early 2,000 by a group of doctors and nurses, dedicating their time and own resources in assisting the most vulnerable communities within the Équateur Province, of the Democratic Republic Congo.
The dedication of our founding members, has enabled ASODEV over a 20 year period of time for ASODEV to progress from a regional office under the guidance of our head office based in Kinshasa to work alongside organisations as such with Caritas International, Shelter Afrique and several large International AID and Relief agencies.
ASODEV’s core strength is its in-depth working relationship via our organisational structure with the most deprived and vulnerable communities especially within, but not limited to the Équateur Region.
ASODEV has at its disposal multi-disciplinary experts including doctors, nurses, engineers, lawyers, who have unrivalled experience within the DRC’s humanitarian sectors such as humanitarian assistance, social programs for the vulnerable and destitute ( Children, Orphans, Mothers, Prisoners ) supply of medical drugs and training.
ASODEV strives upon citizen empowerment through our management for monitoring and evaluation of poverty reduction in providing the support in strengthening the means of action in the local communities, regarding the identification of problems, formulation of projects, management and execution of the identified projects.
ASODEV warmly extends its open reach to all International NGO’s, AID Agencies, Civil Society Organisations who share our common goal in assisting with the alleviation of the most vulnerable in our communities, whereby we can deliver hope and empowerment together for all.
