Our Mission lies in improving the quality of life of youth and promotes their integration and active participation in all spheres of European society. Enhancing civic participation and empowering immigrants and refugees in Europe is one of the key strategic roles of ADEVA. Our organization engages in activities that promote cultural education for both immigrants and refugees. Moreover, our aim lies in contributing to Africa’s sustainable, social and economic development through harnessing the huge potential will of both African-Europeans and African Diaspora. ADEVA realizes the importance of African Diaspora in creating a positive socio-economic change in Africa. We believe that building bridges between Africa and Europe shall help stimulate economic activities along with enhancing the exchange of knowledge and culture.
