What We Do

Core programmes
APD is in essence a project organization, which works to accomplish its mission through the implementation of relief and rehabilitation projects, with these projects serving to cushion communities against future vulnerabilities to unforeseen emergencies. Core areas of concern and interventions revolve around Emergency response, water, sanitation and hygiene, education, health, peace and protection and Food Security as its core programmes. All other subsequent APD projects closely follow on the frameworks of these intervention logics, among them:
• The participatory approach – which is usually applied to project identification, implementation and monitoring.
• Considerations of gender, environment and capacity building.
• Project cycle management guidelines are adhered to in the design, implementation and monitoring of projects.
a) Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Poor sanitation, lack of water and poor hygiene has many serious health issues. Children, particularly girls, are denied their right to education because their schools lack private and decent sanitation facilities. Women are forced to spend large parts of their days fetching water. Without proper WASH sustainable development is impossible and this has affected many countries in the World. Major issues that APD addresses in order to enhance access to clean and safe water, improved sanitation and hygiene are:
• Boreholes, dams, pans, shallow wells repair and construction
• Strengthening of water management structures
• Sanitation  improvement to curb diseases
b) Education
APD’s strategy is to equip youth and elderly with relevant education that will empower them to improve their livelihoods. We address a sustainable and community-based approach to the rehabilitation, renewal and reconstruction of the education sector, giving more emphasize to the establishment and support of youth and women education initiatives.
c) Peace and Protections
As is often the case in conflict-affected communities, much of the impact of the conflict is borne by women and youth.  APD has actively promoted women’s participation in peace building initiatives with the aim of enabling women to articulate and advocate for their socio-economic and political interests.
APD supports women’s organizations and encourages the involvement of women in all levels of peace building at the village, region and national levels and promotes peace and human rights through the following activities:
• Supporting community mechanisms for averting and resolving conflicts through dialogue
• Building the capacity of women’s organizations to identify mediators and strategize on conflict prevention and resolution
• Conducting awareness campaigns on peace, democracy and democratic governance
• Provide protection monitoring network for the displaced and victim of violence.
Since its inception APD have held seminar for the locals on peace building and co-existence of community through dialogue of any problem that arise. APD is also involved in reporting PMT/PMN in Juba regions as well as mainstreaming its program with protection issues. We provide psychosocial support to victims of GBV and other protection related issues. More recently in partnership with PACT/ACT Kenya through DFID support APD is implementing peace II programme in Bilis Qoqani and Hosingo through peace dividend project.
d) Health & Nutrition
The main strategic priority of APD in its involvement in health & nutrition sector is to ensure access to quality primary, secondary health care services and avert the malnutrition rate that exist is Horn of Africa. This is achievable through improved availability, access and quality of health care services; improve health infrastructure and human resource capacity. This can be done through:
• Skills training of medical personnel
• Rehabilitate available health care centers
• Re-equipment of the health services
• Supply and delivery of drugs
APD continues with its interventions both in health and nutrition across Somalia to save lives of many children’s and mothers who are faced with the predicament of over two century without functional government to provide the much needed support for social growth.
e) Emergency Response
The community experience from time to time humanitarian crises that are due to environmental degradation, lack of education and absence of basic social amenities. Due to these and other calamities, which periodically occur, APD will like to respond to this by involvement in:
• Cash-based program
• Water trucking
• Food and non-food Distribution of items
f) Food Security
Pastoral Somalis have built a rich cultural base that has sustained their ways of life for centuries. However, years of conflict and civil war have left the pastoral economy depressed and without the ability of coping mechanism. APD responds by supporting alternative livelihoods, respecting employment dignity and creating engines for economic diversification and prosperity. APD will target the following objectives in its response to the needs:
• Income generation at household level through enhanced livelihoods
• Improve access to safe water and rangeland through improved pastoral livelihood system.
• Improved local resources by improving governance
• Enhance capacity of local communities, institutions and government for sustainable management of pastoral resources.
