What We Do 2018-10-27T14:57:26+03:00


RACIDA currently implements projects across the Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, and South Sudan under six core programs guided by our three strategic goals: Providing Humanitarian Assistance, Building Resilience, and Promoting Peace and Security.

RACIDA recognizes sustainable development outcomes cannot be delivered to our target communities without ensuring peace and stability.  We work directly with communities to build their capacity in peace building, combining both traditional and modern techniques to conflict mitigation and resolution.

At the heart of RACIDA’s operations is our humanitarian response to natural and manmade hazards such as droughts, floods, and conflict impacting Agro-Pastoralist communities in our target countries.

The impact of disasters on community development in our target areas is severe. RACIDA’s programs aim to improve the resilience of Agro-pastoral communities so they can effectively recover from the effects of shocks (natural disaster, conflict, and economic instability) and continue working towards sustainable development.


RACIDA is a member of WASH Impact Network, an online platform, which can be accessed at washinnovations.r4d.org. This is a network funded by Results For Development (R4D) and implemented by Millennium Water Alliance (MWA) founded for the promotion and marketing of more than 120 WASH innovative organizations across India and East Africa.

The Network is helping these organizations to understand some of the shared challenges of WASH organizations, and highlights some opportunities for collaboration and joint problem solving.

RACIDA is also a member of the national level Water Environmental and Sanitation Coordination (WESCORD) in which it is the secretariat in Mandera County. It is also a strong member of the NGO forums in Mandera and Wajir Counties.
