ABOUT US
Our Vision
We believe in a united South Africa principled on the philosophy of UBUNTU that drives sustainable and inclusive economic change by empowering its people. We envision a socially cohesive people that are conscious and community orientated. Ethical, moral and transparent leadership that will pave the way for a South Africa that is equal, just and surpasses its potential.
Our Mission
Our Mission as the African Democratic Change is to;

1. Create an inclusive, non-racialized South African identity, premised on the philosophy of UBUNTU, that binds the diverse people of our country towards a common vision that safeguards democracy and human rights for sustained equality, peace and prosperity.

2. Create a society where all people have the means and skills to fulfil their potential in a manner that fosters collaboration and installs dignity. This equates to ensuring the development of quality education and skills that are responsive to the needs of our economy. Furthermore, a transformed society where our youth and women receive the opportunities and respect they deserve.

3. Create a capable South African state that is governed by moral, ethical and transparent leadership which engages its people and demands accountability which sets the precedence for good governance and innovation within Africa and the broader international community.

Our History
The African Democratic Change was officially formed on 1 and 2 December 2017 at its Founding Conference. ADeC was formed through a unique, bottom-up approach by the coming together of various individuals and groups representing a diverse cross-section of society. The relevant stakeholders represent a culmination of various grass-roots initiatives, disillusioned former members of existing political parties, concerned students, and community organizations. These stakeholders, who formed members of the delegation at the Founding Conference, represented all 9 provinces. The Founding Conference provided the platform for the delegates to not only meet, but to form the vision, mission and declaration of the party.
Why us?
ADEC exists as a result of the calls to create a political home where all South Africans can feel at home. The light of our great liberators has continued to dim over the last few years, and thus a political void has been created. It is thus our duty, as ADeC, to reignite the torch of our liberators and fulfill their mission of creating a unified and prosperous country and people. The current political void, which is created as a result of parties that are either disintegrating or lack the capacity to capture the trust and support of a big cross-section of society, has emphasized the necessity of creating a new political party that will serve the needs of the South African people. ADeC has responded to the pleas of a disgruntled Nation, and vows to actively take on the responsibility to lead the country forward.
