Alliance for Development and Population Services [ADEPS] is a non-profit, non commercial Community Based Organization CBO, subscribing to universal humanitarian values and practices and legally registered in 2002 after establishment in 2001 in response to a myriad of development problems in Vhiga county e.g hard core poverty and the fact that people lack knowledge on how to create wealth, high rate of dependency among  many other problems, making life here more pathetic and miserable.

The Organization operates within a well structured system where it has, democratically adopted constitution; with clear separation of policy makers and the Executive, meaning that there is one group who decides on the policy of the organization and different group of people doing the work [Executive] then finally we have the third group involved which comprises the people who benefits from the organization. The beneficiaries being represented by the policy makers who also have some real control over the way the employees approach their work. But they will not interfere in the decision making about the day-to day work of the employees nor, the employees cannot re-interpret the policies put in place by the board to suit their own interests and visions, but have ways of providing information to the  board e.g through consultative meeting i.e Joint Staff and Board [JBS] so as to have an input into the process of policy development to enable the two teams understand, accept and work within that policy framework.

Since inception to date, a number of achievements have been recorded so far e.g quality of knowledge on healthcare management and control where more than 15,734 members of the community have been empowered to play an active role and 4000 health related products distributed to the community to help in management of health care related issues; Established an orphans and vulnerable children support program where 150 children are covered for education and other line activities.
