Welcome to the Homepage of the Alliance for Democracy in Africa (ADA)

Based in The Gambia, the Alliance for Democracy in Africa (ADA) is an independent nonprofit, nongovernmental, tax exempt 501(c)(3) membership organization that is dedicated to promoting democracy by encouraging Africans, particularly women and children, to internalize and practise democratic values in their societies. The organization was founded in May 2000 and opened a West Africa Regional Office in The Gambia in June 2001.
