Message From AADA Founder
This has been a very successful year for AADA. Our organization has expanded significantly over the last twelve months and we have made a number of particularly notable achievements. Major projects that we recently embarked on are progressing very satisfactorily. Our achievements would not have been possible without committed field staff, a network of community volunteers, the expertise of program and senior managers, and the generous and professional support of stakeholders and development partners.
The past year was a busy, challenging, rewarding and productive one for all of us. AADA members, management, field staff, volunteers and trustees exhibited their dedication, talent, potential and enthusiasm while working towards achieving our vision – Empowered Communities. Across our network, we are continually striving to improve our accountability and transparency mechanisms. Not only is it of the utmost importance for our beneficiaries, donors and partners, as well as our members, staff and volunteers, but it is also the best way to deliver effective humanitarian services for vulnerable people around the country.
Although AADA encountered multiple challenges along the way, the team managed to extend/expand its activities to 26 provinces. AADA also made a significant contribution to the reduction of child mortality and morbidity across Afghanistan, and marginalized groups, including Injecting Drug Users, were provided with vital HIV prevention and harm reduction services. As AADA continues to grow, our annual turnover was nearly 20 million USD, and we can proudly state that we directly impacted the lives of almost five million beneficiaries.
This is a good opportunity for me to thank our funders, partners and volunteers for their support during 2016, as we continue to work towards improving the lives of vulnerable populations and enabling community development across Afghanistan. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated team of honest employees, partners, and trustees who have worked with us to ensure that our services are delivered to the maximum standard in the sector.
