RECOGNIZING THE INNATE DIGNITY AND WORTH OF ALL PEOPLE AND THE VALUE OF DIVERSITY

DADO is founded on the principles of working with the most marginalized agro-pastoral and minority communities with a broader call toward providing a holistic approach to community development. It focuses on supporting community development initiatives through building resilience, peace & reconciliation, protection and promotion of pastoralist and minority groups’ rights, including livelihoods enhancement among the pastoralists’ communities in the triangular board areas of north-eastern Uganda, north-western Kenya and south-eastern South Sudan.

PEACE & CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Peace and Conflict ResolutionPeace and Conflict ResolutionWar tears at every fiber of society, but conflict doesn't have to be violent to harm communities. DADO works to help families rebuild after the destruction of war and engages citizens to find mutually beneficial solutions for change. Especially in post-conflict settings, we facilitate collaboration between government officials and the people they serve, leading to more accountable and productive leadership. Addressing the root causes of conflict today can help avoid tomorrow's wars and other crises.

 

 

 

WATER & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Water and Economic DevelopmentWater and Economic Development

Karamoja is an agro-pastoralist region, northeast of Uganda. For the past decades, it has been characterized by chronic underdevelopment and marginalization. The region is currently going through a deep humanitarian crisis, combining severe food insecurity, human insecurity and environmental destruction, all linked to global climate change. A big challenge in Karamoja is access to water. DADO and partners have supported activities to ensure more water to Karamoja by using local labor and innovative methods such as rock catchments.
