Association for Development through Education
ADE is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to providing for the educational and local leadership development needs of post-disaster regions and marginalized communities. ADE serves a network of individuals, organizations, and institutions of higher education in both the global South and the North.
ADE has initially directed its services to the Vara Blanca region of Costa Rica that was decimated by a low-lying 6.4 (Richter scale) earthquake on January 8th, 2009. In the future, ADE will replicate its education and discipleship-focused development model by training local leaders to offer assistance to other post-disaster and marginalized regions across the globe.
