ORDA Ethiopia is an adventurously growing organization. Starting from a scratch in remote areas where social and economic overhead capitals were unthinkable, the historical evolution of ORDA Ethiopia has conferred it a special experience of living in and working with people up on their conviction and effective participation. This rout of its evolution passing through gloomy hardships has also given it a passion of learning-by-doing, working in and tackling hardships, holding people as a pillar.
Currently, ORDA Ethiopia focuses on five programs. These are:
1. Forest, Environment and Climate Change Program
2. WaSH, Irrigation and Infrastructure Development Program
3. Agriculture, Nutrition and DRM Program
4. Gender, Disability Inclusion and Youth Employment Program
5. Food Commodity Management and Emergency Program
Its expanding developmental endeavors and experience of working with partners have also been enabling ORDA Ethiopia not only to attain its modern institutional setup but also to sustain its comparative advantages/strengths and then to emerge as a reliable/qualified developmental partner. Among the strengths of ORDA Ethiopia enabling it to implement what it wants to do in a timely manner, some are unique and worth mentioning, i.e., its strong relation with government, its respect for and recognition by the people, its accumulated wealth of experiences of implementing diverse developmental activities, its passion of working under harsh circumstances, its network and partnership with a variety of NGOs and donors, and its organizational structure stretched into district levels fleshed with capable, committed and dedicated staff are among the distinctive features of ORDAEthiopia. Thus, working with ORDA Ethiopiais working with the poor to make them healthy, confident and enlightened.
