Mission Statement

ADRA Lao works with people in poverty and distress to create just and positive change through empowering partnerships and responsible action.

Program Description

Building on the strengths of the past with ADRA Lao’s extensive experience over the past 30 years, our program strategy focuses on two primary thematic sectors: health and nutrition; and agriculture and livelihoods. Other areas of expertise and interest include education and tobacco control, while gender, social inclusion, climate change adaptation, and disaster risk reduction and management are cross-cutting across all areas of our work. We aim to strengthen multi-sector-wide initiatives and services through developing and building on our existing effective partnerships with government counterparts, stakeholders and local civil society organizations and collaborating with development partners.
