a sustainable development organization.

PASDO is the best nonprofit, nongovernmental, charitable, volunteer friendly and Africa-focused international development organization taking action to fight hunger, poverty and climate change, and to achieve other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that include Good Health and Well-being (Goal 3), Quality Education (Goal 4), Clean Water and Sanitation (Goal 6) and Affordable and Clean Energy (Goal 7), among others.

Young volunteers from all continents around the world contribute to PASDO's work on sustainable development.

PASDO has strong presence in Nigeria with operations in other African countries, in North America (including the United States and Canada), in Asia and in other continents.

To enhance its functions, amplify its impacts and ensure accountability in its operations, PASDO holds accreditation of various intergovernmental organizations.
For example, 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. PASDO is also accredited by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), among others.

An acronym for Peace Advocacy and Sustainable Development Outreach, PASDO recognizes the following four strategic pillars in its approach to sustainable development:



Construction of classrooms for primary and secondary schools under the Basic Education Project
PASDO's Basic Education Project: Construction of classrooms for Primary and Secondary Schools.
Primary and Secondary education in Nigeria and across African still face major hurdles. For example, one in every five of the world’s out-of-school children live in Nigeria. This translates to more than 10 million children of primary school age of 5-14 years. PASDO runs a Basic Education Project (BEP) which aims to increase primary and secondary school enrollment for the millions of out-of-school children in Nigeria.

Clean Water and SANITATION for all

The condition of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Nigeria and the wider Africa is still a major source of concern.

Through the construction of electric powered boreholes, 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.

Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CADA)

Gully erosion and Lanslide activities in Nanka, Anambra State, Nigeria. One of the worst impacst of climate change in Africa.

Although Africa contributes very little or nothing to global climate change, it faces the worst impacts.
These impacts manifest in various ways around the continent. From desert encroachment, to flooding, to gully erosion and landslide activities.

Farmlands and crops are destroyed, and agricultural output is on a steady decline. Community infrastructure are continually gullied.
Livelihoods are lost.
The summary is that hunger and poverty are on the rise in the continent and concerted effort is needed to help Africa adapt to these climate change impacts.

Through its Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CADA) programme, PASDO is helping to tackle the challenges.

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).

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 global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic  posed significant challenges to humans and negatively affected critical sectors of societal development, including health, education, hunger and poverty levels, trade and even international relations. PASDO is delivering a coordinated response to some of these challenges.

The China-Africa Peace Initiative (CAPI)
