ADDA in a nutshell

The African Drone and Data Academy (ADDA) aims to be a center of excellence that will equip African youth with necessary 21st-century skills while strengthening the drone ecosystem for more effective humanitarian and development response.

The ADDA course, developed by the Virginia Tech(USA) partnering with Malawi University of Science and Technology (Malawi) as its local partner , combines theoretical and practical methodologies in making, testing and flying drones. The curriculum allows young people to learn how to construct and pilot drones, to integrate them into a supply chain system and to analyze drone data. It follows UNICEF’s ‘ Drones and Data for Good’ vision, focusing on the potential of technology to positively impact the youth.
