MAINTENANCE SUSTAINABILITY AFRICA

We are a new NGO with a strong focus on sustainable development of the African continent through advocacy and effective partnerships with government agencies and non-governmental organizations and development partners.

OUR BACKGROUND

(MSA) is a volunteer based youth led organization formed to foster the sustainable development of the continent. The organization was formerly known as the Non Allied Group. Our principal focus areas were electoral education & peace building and advancement of democracy through popular participation and mediation. Earlier 2014 we broadened our scope of focus and shifted from an entirely advocacy based group to include services. Following this, our name was changed to reflect our focus on sustainable development.

VISION

An Africa where development is sustained and infrastructure preserved”. We hope to contribute to this by offering sustainable solutions to development challenges, foster maintenance of infrastructure and to promote the sustainable development goals.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that if we can maintain the few infrastructure base and sustain our environment, we would be keeping a strong and healthy foundation for sustained development. This will help us to directly and indirectly help address other pertinent issues such as impacts of climate change, poverty, illiteracy, urbanization among others.
