Africa's Project Development Studio for green and social impact

About Us

ASSOCIATION 3535 works at the intersection of 6 carefully chosen priorities shaping our present and future:
Climate Change, Food Security, Healthcare, Technology, Youth Employment and Black Excellence.

We are a not-for-profit, project development studio that ideates, designs and implements projects that are creating jobs and saving the planet.

Our Story

Founded in 2016, our name came from organizing the “Africa 35.35 awards”, a six-year long fellowship program and awards ceremony that recognized yearly the merit of 35 remarkable young innovators under 35 from Africa and the Afro Diaspora. We grew into a community of close to 200 remarkable young innovators from 32 countries (today counting ministers, business heroes, civil society leaders, influencers and opinion-makers).

Evolving our theory of change, we have now grown into a project developer of transformational social and environmental impact-driven projects.

We are proud to count as past or present technical and financial partners: the Institute of Food Technologists, the Million Cool Roofs Challenge, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Office For Project Services, the United Nations International Labor Organization and Google.

What We Do

We are pioneers in Africa. We have a knack for great ideas, we mobilize resources, pilot, scale projects or spin-off organizations which combine one or many of our priority areas.
