Afghan Development Association (ADA)
About the Company
The Afghan Development Association (ADA) is an agency that is non-governmental, non-profit, and non-political. It promotes and provides the people of Afghanistan with development and humanitarian related services. ADA has provided assistance to the most poverty-stricken communities across Afghanistan in a multitude of sectors since its inception in 1990. Too often, resources, in terms of access, quantity and efficiency, do not reach poor people. Realizing this, the primary objective of ADA is to enhance the provision of service by making it a people-center. ADA is particularly sensitive to disparities between cultures and individuals, and ADA tries to give the most attention to the societies it seeks to represent. ADA has identified the building blocks and built and implemented development projects that resolve deep-rooted socio-economic, institutional and other systemic factors at the local level that underlie the immediate symptoms of conflict. In providing services and goods to the people of Afghanistan, transparency , accountability and quality are the guiding forces.
ADA argues that the main factors in building and supporting the creation of communities in Afghanistan are women, young people, disabled, poor, and poor citizens. ADA has also developed many projects that are community-centered, participatory and require the broad involvement of key stakeholders, including women , young people and disabled people.
