WORDA works toward changing the lives of the vulnerable women community in Somaliland by improving access to social services, human rights and livelihoods through action-oriented.
WORDA is rooted in human rights in approach and theory of change within Somaliland’s cultural, economic, and political context. We engage in a human rights-based approach with a focus on breaking the cycle of women’s exclusion from access to justice, control and decision making on issues that affect their wellbeing, increasing youth participation in social, economic and political development and increasing skills training for employability.
Our work uses data to address the needs of the local community and evidence-based practices to advocate their needs, placing a special emphasis on women and children’s basic education, reproductive health and sanitation, human rights (advocacy against harmful practices), and sustainable income generation.
