Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it does not e-file IRS Form 990

To ensure year-to-year consistency, the Encompass Rating System’s Finance & Accountability beacon analyzes the three-year average of some data provided through the IRS Form 990.
Charity Navigator does not currently have the data required from e-filed Forms 990 for Africa Development Promise under the EIN: 38-3909756. 
This indicates that Africa Development Promise may still be filing paper Forms 990.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

By 2020, ADP plans to support more than 650 women farmers representing 10 agricultural cooperatives across Uganda and Rwanda. We will provide needed technical assistance, training, access to inputs, and support to broaden their networks. The cooperatives that we currently support will become demonstration projects serving as “field-schools" for joint learning and building/sharing experience. We will facilitate forums for key players in the local agricultural sector to exchange ideas, share best practices and update on current and emerging topics that could affect them. As cooperatives grow and offer beneficial services to their members, the hope is they will attract more people to join the cooperative, having a positive ripple effect in the local economy. To achieve this plan, ADP will gradually increase its budget to ensure continued capacity to support the growing program – with a budget goal of $450,000 by 2020 (a total of $1.25+ million over 4 years).

What are your strategies for making this happen?

ADP’s key objective is to establish a firm foundation for the cooperatives to become self-reliant and economically viable organizations. ADP will support the cooperatives with modern technologies such as green-houses, irrigation solutions, improved seed, fertilizer and other complementary inputs to maximize use of land, increase crop production and profitability. Through education and training programs, ADP professionalizes cooperative management and governance; delivers technical support by partnering with private extension services companies and tapping into public extension services offered at the district level to address subjects such as soil and water resource management, climate adaptation, weed and pest management while also promoting value addition and diversification efforts. The plan is to provide ongoing support to the cooperatives for three to four years and once they are on a firm foundation begin to phase out support and exit.

What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

ADP believes that social embeddedness is where our strength lies. Our staff are local to the community and have strong supportive relationships with national and district government, churches, community based organizations, local NGOs and elders in the community. Through these relationships they are aware of the issues that are important to the community and furthermore understand how the formal and informal markets work.

How will your organization know if you are making progress?

The effectiveness of our program is measured by the degree to which ADP has met it’s intended outcomes — Agricultural cooperative's business management skills improved, extension services partnership developed to improve productivity , sustainable, climate smart crop practices implemented, strengthened agricultural market linkages, etc. Examples of progress indicators include: (1) Does cooperative have a good governance framework? i.e., Does the cooperative have a business plan? Are relevant policies and procedures in place? Are monthly financial statements accurate? Are members kept abreast about cooperative activities? Do leaders participate in community affairs to promote co-op’s interest?; (2) Number of co-ops/farmers who are applying new learning; (3) Total Increase in Crop Production; (4) Number of Co-ops securing contracts for produce; (5) Increased profits; and (6) % of co-op members with increased incomes

What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

When ADP began five years ago, we served one small agricultural cooperative in Bugesera District in Rwanda. Since then, we've expanded our reach by providing rural women's groups in Rwanda and Uganda with inputs, training, credit, and access to markets that they need to gain social and economic independence. We currently support 5 cooperatives with over 230 members, 60 contract farmers and 1465 dependents. In addition, ADP is piloting a solar energy kiosk project in Uganda, which represents a core component of our program expansion. Once fully implemented, five women owned solar kiosks will offer solar energy products for home lighting and agricultural productive use to communities in Gayaza parish in Uganda.
