Our Mission is to harness potential of communities to help themselves, assume control of their local development, improve their standard of living by eradicating extreme poverty and be able to prevent diseases

Africa Alliance for Health, Research and Economic Development (AAHRED) is impact driven independent non-governmental humanitarian organization employing volunteer action to empower local communities eradicate poverty, causes of poverty and diseases.

We tackle social and economic challenges from education, environmental health, Sustainable agriculture, water and sanitation, humanitarian relief, micro finance and social -economic rights by engaging local communities, civil society organizations, the private sector and government to prioritize the rural and vulnerable poor women, youth and children. We support self-reliance initiatives for the less fortunate and poor.
It is crucial that we shift community attitudes and practices towards children’s well-being and engage governments to provide services and change policies in favor of women’s economic rights, children protection and empowerment for sustainable change and in safeguarding children’s future and leaving no one behind.
We emphasize the right of all people not to be poor.

Enterprise Development:Scaling Solutions to Poverty Eradication

Policy makers globally are faced with competing solutions and ideas meant to come up with a cost-effective approach to alleviate poverty among the ultra-poor. Partnering with like-minded organizations, AAHRED has established Village Enterprise Programs that aim at building the capacity of village youth and women to scale up and diversify their livelihood.
For poverty eradication, utilizing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is the backbone of economic progress and the key in the path towards socially inclusive economic growth. SMEs generate opportunities across sectors and geographic areas, and employ broad and diverse segments of the labor force with huge multiplier effects benefiting employees, suppliers, and customers, as well as local governments and the overall community. However, SMEs face important barriers that limit their ability to grow and create jobs, such as limited access to finance, poor managerial skills, and lack of access to markets.
As a mechanism, AAHRED in partnership with a number of stakeholders and partners seek to scale-up effective enterprising solutions meant to facilitate establishment of small and medium enterprises, market systems development and strategic partnerships for business development.
We work to:
Provide households with enterprise training to build capacity and interest among the youth and women in agricultural, industrial and service sectors.
Partner with like-minded organizations and community initiatives to facilitate market systems development aimed at providing market information, market arrangements such as the establishment of cooperatives and farmer groups, and linking the 'Village Enterprises' weather high-end and value created markets.
Provide professional training on value addition of raw materials to create high value commodities and services yielding higher returns.
Triggering value-chain connectivity, improving on marketing strategies, connecting and providing innovative platforms to market commodities such as Agriswipe
Incentivizing corporate markets to develop and invest in rural retail networks in a bid to address persistent market failures.


We call for reduced environmental health risks related to harmful chemicals and waste through:
1. Identify possible linkages between environmental hazards and disease
2. Monitoring environmental hazards and related diseases
3. Promote actions enhancing air and water quality
4. Strengthen institutional partnership and capacity in pollution management
5. Implement health actions to prevent environment-related diseases
We believe in building capacities through trainings, hand held support and technical assistance in finance and distribution, business development, partnerships, Marketing, fostering women’s and youth leadership and influencing their local and national environment; starting with a small business, many of women and youth soon become social leaders in their communities as their self-esteem rise up.

1) Maternal and Child Survival
2) Improved nutrition

Good Governance and Public Accountability

Extreme Poverty, Inequality and Exclusion prevail among a billion people worldwide being a manifestation of unjust situations and that should cause outrage in a world in which the financial, technological and intellectual resources for poverty reduction are clearly available. Poverty is actually being voiceless, powerless and excluded from decision making as poor people and having no meaningful and effective political participation.
Poverty eradication and effective resource conflict management is the behests of leaderships’ goodwill to establish credible and reliable institutions meant to solve the people's issues on the principles of equality, equity and answerability. Those in power are expected to be answerable to the people they serve. Good governance exists where there are credible and trustworthy institutions that are built on the principles of transparency and accountability. Since accountability goes beyond the aspect of responsibility in delivering a particular service and mandate by the public institutions, AAHRED in partnership with other organizations focuses on policy assessments around public finance management (resource allocation and distribution), climate justice and community engagement in development planning.
