African Development and Emergency Organization (ADEO) is an African based NGO headquartered in Nairobi. The formation of African Development and emergency Organization(ADEO) was conceptualized by a group of medical doctors who had a rich and varied experience in humanitarian work from different countries in Africa. The concept was born out of the realization that most of the humanitarian actors in Africa are from the western countries but insignificant contribution by Africans. The formation of ADEO was a response to the need to strengthen and build the home-grown capacity to bridge the gap where Africans are at the centre of seeking solutions for the African people.
