African Renaissance and Diaspora Network, Inc. (ARDN) serves as a coordinating body working to unite the efforts of individuals and organizations towards a single purpose: supporting the advent of the African renaissance by fostering unity between African Nations and all peoples of African descent. Established as an informal association in the 1990s, ARDN is currently an internationally operating United States 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Public Charity, based in New York.

ARDN’s methodology revolves around supporting and furthering the sustainable development processes of the United Nations as they relate to Africa and the African Diaspora, with emphasis on the Sustainable Development Goals. ARDN mobilizes the passion of government, educators, artists, intellectuals, the private sector, civil society and youth, using the power of sport and culture as vectors for achieving these important benchmarks that have been discussed and agreed upon by governments throughout the world.
