AMRDO has made a considerable shift in its programming approach over the years. From direct service provision to enabling poor and vulnerable groups, AMRDO has evolved into a rights-based organisation in order to address the underlying causes of poverty. Our focus is explicitly on the well-being, social position, and rights of men, women, and children from marginalised communities.
AMRDO focuses on developing the potential of women and girls to drive long-lasting equitable changes. We strategically emphasise promoting quality healthcare, inclusive education, gender equity, sustainable livelihood opportunities, and disaster relief and preparedness.
Our efforts are focused on fighting against the underlying causes of poverty, building secure and resilient communities, and ensuring a life of dignity for all men, women, young people, and children from the most marginalised and vulnerable communities. It also undertakes activities and programmes that make a difference in the lives of rural people. For example, it brings technological change, community physical infrastructure, livelihood uplifting, nutrition and health, basic education and literacy, skills through training, access to new markets, etc. AMRDO empowers both rural and urban men and women on the outskirts of society, allowing them to participate more freely in public forums and gain access to resources that they would not otherwise have.
As we move ahead, our key programming approach will continue to include social analysis and action; gender transformative value chain approaches; leadership and life skills strengthening; building capacities and leadership roles at multiple levels; advocacy on national and international platforms; and facilitating links and dialogues between public, private, and civil society.
