AAPDEP’s First Ever Town Hall

The All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) held our first ever Facebook Town Hall entitled “What does sustainable development in Africa look like”. The panelist were Dr. Aisha Fields, International Director of AAPDEP; Omowale Kefing, Chair of Houston AAPDEP and Yejide Orunmila, Information and Education Director of AAPDEP.

The panelist answered questions about China in Africa, Charity and Foreign Aid, and about some setbacks they’ve experienced as an organization.

Their answers were powerful and speaks to why having an African-led development organization is sorely needed.
