The Albanian-American Development Foundation (AADF) was created in 2009 by the Albanian-American Enterprise Fund with the support and encouragement of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States Government. The AADF is a not-for-profit corporation governed by a Board of Trustees which operates entirely in Albania.
The mission of the Foundation is to facilitate the development of a sustainable private sector economy and a democratic society in Albania, and to contribute to stability in Southeastern Europe. The AADF sponsors the following programs to further its mission: education for sustainable development; entrepreneurship; leadership development; and support for cultural tourism and eco-tourism.
Our goals are to identify areas of need within our mission; develop innovative and measurable solutions to create sustainable impact in these areas; operate like a business in an accountable and non-bureaucratic manner; collaborate with other organizations and institutions to maximize resources and form strategic partnerships that can catalyze change; implement our projects directly and transparently and evaluate our efforts and continue to improve and expand them.
AADF’s team is comprised of a mix of young and seasoned professionals, whose goals and aspirations are to bring change and development. AADF’s team is focused to implement and deliver first class projects that are sustainable, generate public enthusiasm and support and become inspiring models for the Albanian people.
