Who are we?

The African Disability Alliance (ADA) was initially called the Secretariat of the African Decade of Persons with Disability (SADPD). The organisation’s name was changed with effect from 11 April 2014. The registration of ADA launches a new phase in the development and maturity of the organisation as a disability-led technical agency deriving its mandate from the human rights movement of organisations of persons with disabilities that constitute its membership.
