AIDO Network International

AIDO Network International is a non-profit organisation headquartered in London with chapters and affiliated traditional leaders and kingdoms in several countries in Africa, that promotes peace and respect through culture as a means for unity and sustainable development. Our objective, among others, is to uphold the spirit of UBUNTU (Humanity or Human Rights) and thus promote social inclusion across all communities everywhere.

AIDO is an international NGO, established in 2018, as ‘Ateker International Development Organisation’. It has since widened its reach, with chapters in Germany, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Togo, Uganda, USA, and the UK. 

The network is strengthened by its membership made up of individuals, cultural institutions, community groups and organisations, all committed to using their expertise locally to contribute sustainable development and social change.

AIDO members, commonly referred to as ‘Aidoers’ work together through the organisation’s local, national and international structures.
