History and Company Overview

The Africa Development Organization’s (ADO) central premise of development arose from a series of meetings beginning in April 2013, orchestrated by John Keita of Brooklyn NY.

He assembled Ambassadors, Associates of Sitting Heads of State of a number of several African Nations, and the African Development Organization’s founders to formulate strategies to fund and launch transformational projects and economic activities that would improve the standard of living and wellbeing of every man, woman and child women child of the region.

The relationships formed were committed to look at each opportunity’s challenge and determine how to structure and generate the greatest redeeming value for the respective countries. With this at the heart of thought, the dignitaries and ADO’s team of experts in Engineering, Architecture, Construction, Program Management, Operations and Maintenance, Financing and Aeronautics coalesced to tackle the challenge.

Not only were the technical requirements important, but the team’s heart had to be committed to the people of Africa and sound principles of development.

ADO, its partners and officials made the collective commitment committed to cooperatively work in strategic ways to help the citizens rise above generational poverty and facilitate their taking ownership of their respective nations. This effort will be achieved through the creation of large and small- scale ventures, capital and sustainable economic economy activity.

ADO’s approach is to combine building viable projects using financial tools, human capital and natural resource commitments that respects the environment and works for the benefit of the people. Without corruption or exploitation, our projects would have to bring big ideas to life by harnessing technology, information, team building and ethical conduct in the delivery of project success and profitability.
