Nomad Relief & Development Agency(NRDA) was established in 2009. NRDA is a not-for-profit, non-political organization dedicated in helping communities in the Horn of Africa achieve sustainable and dignified life. The absence of a national administrative infrastructure left individual towns and cities to operate largely on their own. After twenty years of civil war and lack of a functioning state, the vast majority of people of Somalia lack the basic service and infrustracture for sustainable environment.
At Nomad Relief we don't simply feed the hungy, we also help tacle the underlying causes of poverty. We work with self-sufficient developmental programmes, peace and sustainablity initiatives, water and sanitation projects, education and health among others.
At NRDA, we believe “One person can make a difference”. We believe that it is beneficial and economically sound to give people the opportunity to help themselves and improve their lives, rather than by simply providing sustenance aid, without prospects of change. We believe that community involvement at all levels is crucial to the success and sustainability of any rural development programme, especially in the field of education.
We promote community self reliance, sustainable development, grass-roots peace initiatives, and education as a fundamental right in accordance with human dignity, where education is the knowledge of putting one's potentials to maximum use.
To provide incentives and opportunities for educational participation in rural areas, enhancing the roll of schools at village centers;
Promote financially sustainable poverty alleviating initiatives that are conceived, designed, and implemented by the local inhabitants and aimed at enlarging opportunities for community development.
