In 2013, 21.7 million lives were impacted by the compassion and generosity of ADRA supporters and partners all around the world.

Winning Partnerships

At the core of ADRA’s mission is the deep conviction that through empowering partnerships, we are able to create positive changes in the lives of those in poverty and distress.

We pursue strong, equitable relationships with community-based and grassroots organizations to ensure that our work directly impacts those who need it most. We also rely on the invaluable partnerships with  governmental and nongovernmental partners—on all levels—to foster lasting change in the countries we work.

United Nations

For decades, ADRA has maintained a strong partnership with agencies of the United Nations. By supporting UN initiatives and implementing programs on the ground, ADRA and the UN work jointly to meet the needs of the world’s poorest. Through our membership in the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), we participate in discussions on innovative thinking and sustainable development.

Throughout the years, ADRA has forged partnerships with the WFP,  UNHCR, WHO, UNICEF, and other UN Agencies. Together we reached 1,964,085 people around the world in 2013 alone.

Government Partnerships

ADRA builds partnerships with public organizations that play an integral part in fulfilling our mission. By teaming up with government aid agencies and humanitarian organizations around the world, ADRA expands its reach and deepens its capacity.

ADRA International’s partnerships encompass both emergency response and development projects spanning multiple countries and sectors. ADRA receives support from the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and the United States Agency for International Development Food for Peace (USAID FFP).

With the ongoing support of our partners, ADRA responds to people living in poverty and distress by creating real change through responsible action.

Committed to Accountability

At ADRA, we remain committed to implementing a high standard of transparency and financial accountability in business practices, as well as in the design of our programs. The ADRA International annual and financial reports are available and provide an overview of the global impact of our worldwide network.
