Afar Pastoralists Development Association (APDA)
Afar Pastoralists Development Association (APDA) works on a wide variety of projects to contribute to the development and well-being of the Afar people, many of them focusing on vulnerable women and children, including mobile health and vaccination, water provision and harvesting, maternal and child health activities, and education for Afar children.
APDA also supports projects to help people with their livelihoods such as improving animal husbandry, along with protecting and managing the unique Afar environment. In all their projects, APDA works with communities to build relationships and knowledge so that the Afar people take the lead in their own development. APDA also undertakes relief work in times of crisis such as drought.
