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.

News and Upcoming Events


ADA extends a big THANK YOU to volunteer Marta Lynch, who initiated a GoFundMe campaign in response to the urgent appeal for help (see below). She and her friends raised US$500 to assist the women of Sutukoba village. These funds will go a long way towards meeting their needs.
Thank you Marta!


December 2015

Six hundred women members of ADA in Sutukoba village recently lost their rice farm due to devastating floods. With an irrigation pumping machine, donated by a partner organisation, which is pumping water from the river onto an area that is not flood prone, ADA youths in Sutukoba are clearing the land in preparation for the next planting season which begins in June. But much more is needed. The women need help to purchase rice seeds, fertilizers, and weeding machines, as well as receive some compensation for their lost rice crop. ADA’s priority at the moment is to focus on developing the new rice field so that the women will not be dependent on the project.

If you can spare a small amount to help the hard-working women of Sutukoba, please consider making a bank transfer to either of ADA's bank accounts as follows:

Key Bank, 975 Oak Street, Eugene, Oregon 97401, USA
Account number 370601016774

Trust Bank Limited, 3-4 Ecowas Avenue, Banjul, The Gambia
Account number 110 230918-01
Swift Code: tbltgmgm

For more information please contact Madi Touray at kolikunda@yahoo.com, or Amadou Sarr at amadousarr1956@gmail.com

ADA thanks it members and supporters for their continued assistance.
