Arid Lands Development Focus (ALDEF)

Strategic Pillars

Key focus areas

We are committed to transforming the lives of marginalized communities in northern Kenya through a comprehensive approach centered on four strategic pillars. These pillars guide our efforts to provide immediate relief, build long-term resilience, promote good governance, and strengthen institutional capacities. Each pillar is designed to address specific challenges and leverage opportunities to empower communities and enhance their quality of life.

Humanitarian Emergency Response

ALDEF is dedicated to providing timely and effective relief to communities affected by disasters. Our humanitarian emergency response pillar focuses on delivering essential support such as food distribution, cash transfers, and non-food items to those in need.

Building Resilience

We are committed to enhancing the resilience of communities against environmental and economic shocks. Our building resilience pillar focuses on promoting sustainable practices such as climate change adaptation, sustainable agriculture, and disaster risk reduction.

Good Governance, Gender Justice, and Advocacy

We promote good governance, transparency, and accountability, empowering communities to participate in governance and hold their leaders accountable.

Institutional Systems and Capacity Strengthening

ALDEF strengthens internal systems and builds the capacities of local communities and organizations to deliver high-quality services.
