Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform [ADEPT] is a pan-European network of the African diaspora organisations. Our aim is to improve and enhance the capacity and impact of the African diaspora organisations engaged in development activities in Africa.

In the context of COVID-19, ADEPT has launched a media campaign to support and highlight the work that has been done by African organizations and individuals in recent months. Thus, a call for contributions has been issued seeking exceptional organizations and individuals who have made a positive impact and who have shown adaptability during these difficult times.

As a result, 14 projects from the African diaspora were chosen and will be widely showcased under the form of articles and videos starting from September 28, 2020.

The projects will be launched on ADEPT’s social media platforms. You can see the result of the campaign below:
