Recently, ADHOC-CC participated in a unique initiative organised by UNICEF in Geneva.  The consultation drew the participation of over 100 representatives from UNICEF field offices, head-quarters in New York, and international and national NGOs from across the globe to discuss the ways in which already existing partnerships could be enhanced in order to realize children’s rights in emergencies. It was the first UNICEF consultation with NGOs that focused on this critical topic.

African NGOs Speak Their Voice at UNHCR’s Annual Meeting
ADHOC CONTRACT COMMITTEE recently attended the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' 58th Executive Committee in Geneva, where it presented a well-received brief representing the thoughts of many African NGOs working with the UN agency.
More than a decade later ADHOC-CC continues to provide life saving humanitarian assistance to refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and local communities across Africa. To date more than 9 million people affected by crisis have benefited from the support of ADHOC-CC, in 16 different countries: Algeria, Angola, Burundi, Chad, Congo (DR), Ethiopia, Guinea (Rep), Kenya, Liberia, Namibia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda and Zambia.
Our work has seen us deliver multi-sectoral programmes in diverse, difficult and sometimes dangerous situations. This experience, along with our physical, social and cultural proximity, knowledge and understanding of local context, has led us to play an ever increasing role in international advocacy. We have partaken in numerous forums and network meetings around the world, often participating as the only southern NGO.
As we continue to grow and develop as an independent organisation, our focus remains on best serving the affected populations to whom we are ultimately accountable. Excellent communication, impartiality and transparency are key to the positive relationships which we have established with vulnerable populations and donors alike. We are proud to report that for the 13th consecutive year we have received a clean bill of health for our programmes from our partners and auditors (bar one under-performing programme in the Republic of Guinea in 2011), attesting to our high standards and abilities.
Over the years we have built up many strong and effective partnerships and we continue to emphasise the importance of a common effort to prevent suffering and affect positive change for vulnerable communities. We continue to be UNHCR’s largest indigenous partner in Africa. In addition, we work closely with the African Union and many other humanitarian actors.

Our long term plan for the future sees us developing strategies that provide sustainable responses to Africa’s changing needs.  In this light ADHOC-CC continues to work confidently in the belief that Africans have what it takes to effectively address the problems facing the continent – proximity, ownership, local knowledge and expertise.
