Africa Directions (AD) is a youth-led, national, non-governmental, non-profit making organization that was established in 2000 and is registered with the Zambian Registrar of Societies. AD currently runs national programmes and is operating from Mtendere and Chilenje, two socially and economically deprived and high density urban compounds in Lusaka, as well as, Mansa, Luapula Province, a rural district with a high child mortality rate.
AD's mission is to build the capacity, skills, and confidence of Zambian youths from childhood so they can make informed decisions about their lives, and to change negative peer pressure into positive peer education.
AD's vision is a Zambia free from HIV/AIDS where even deprived urban youths have the knowledge and motivation to avoid behavior that leads to infection, and can therefore make a positive contribution to their families and communities.
