a sustainable development organization
PASDO, an acronym for Peace Advocacy and Sustainable Development Outreach, is a non-governmental organization devoted to tackling climate change, hunger and poverty, and promoting peace and sustainable development.
It has strong presence in Africa, America, Asia and Europe, with its main area of intervention being Africa.
A youth-centered and volunteer friendly organization, PASDO is accredited by the United Nations Volunteers service (UNV) to recruit volunteers from around the world and engage them in activities that promote sustainable development.
Successful volunteers usually get UNV-branded certificates at the end of their assignments as proof of their volunteer work. The coveted volunteer certificates proof highly useful for career, education and other professional purposes.
PASDO identifies with four strategic pillars of sustainability that guides all of its work. They are:
Water, Hygiene and Sanitation (WASH)
The condition of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Nigeria and the wider Africa is still a major source of concern.
PASDO is doing its bid to ensure that more people in Africa are able to have access to clean water in order to improve their level of sanitation and hygiene.
BASIC EDUCATION PROJECT (BEP)
Sustainable Aquaculture Supply in West and Central Africa (SasWeCA) Project.
The combination of climate change and population explosion in West and Central Africa is dealing devastating blows to marine biodiversity.
Through the SASWeCA project, PASDO is promoting local fish farming in order to boost fish supply, enhance food and nutrition security and promote climate change adaptation of the marine ecosystem.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis response program (CCRP)
The China-Africa Peace Initiative (CAPI)
The China-Africa Peace Initiative (CAPI) is one of PASDO’s COVID-19 response programs aimed at resolving tensions and preventing conflict between Africans and Chinese as a result of Coronavirus misunderstandings in the Guangdong province of China .
Clean Energy Program
Skyrocketing energy prices and epileptic power supply on one hand, and the need to support global efforts at mitigating greenhouse emissions on the other hand, are the main factors that necessitated PASDO’s Clean Energy Program (CEP).
