Rural Agency for Community Development and Assistance (RACIDA)
Rural Agency for Community Development and Assistance (RACIDA) is a regional non-profit organisation headquartered in Kenya and with country programmes in Ethiopia, Somalia, and South Sudan. Our goals are to Provide Human Assistance, Build Resilience and Promote Peace and Security.
Since its founding in 2001, RACIDA has worked to build the capacity of Agro- pastoralist communities living in Arid and Semi-Arid lands across the Horn of Africa in preventing and mitigating the impact of hazards of communities at risk. Anchored by a Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) approach, and guided by our belief that the communities we work with should be at the centre of their own development trajectory, we implement practical programmes that enable (Agro)-pastoral development, empowerment and wellbeing.
