About Us

Home / About Us

Since its founding, AAP has worked to build the capacity of Agro- pastoralist communities living in Arid and Semi-Arid lands across the Horn of Africa in preventing and mitigating the impact of hazards of communities at risk. Anchored by a Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) approach, and guided by our belief that the communities we work with should be at the centre of their own development trajectory, we implement practical programmes that enable (Agro)-pastoral development, empowerment and wellbeing.

AAP entrusted with a responsibility to the public, takes ownership of the task at hand, takes the initiative and proactively pull together resources of all types in order to find and implement feasible solutions in Communities.

AAP is accountable for its actions and decisions, primarily to the community it serves, and also to its funding agencies, the government, staff and volunteers, members, partner organizations, and the public at large.

Values

Service beyond self

AAP integrates self-development and individual concerns with public concerns, focusing on higher, broader, and more public levels of service. We conduct our activities for the sake of others, whether the public at large or a particular segment of the public. We are exemplars of genuine giving out of concern for the welfare of others without the primary goal of our own enhancement or profit.

Respect for human rights

AAP do not violate any person’s fundamental human rights, with which each person is endowed, as recognized for example in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We recognize that all people are born free and equal in dignity and right and should be sensitive to the moral values, religion, customs, traditions, and cultures of the communities they serve.
