Peace building

We believe that no development can be sustained without genuine stability and peace. Hence, we tailor our various interventions in a manner that can contribute to peace either directly and indirect. Capitalizing on our extensive understanding of local contexts and strong relationship with local communities, we often mediate conflicting groups and promote peaceful co-existence among communities polarized by war. 

Our Vision

AVORD envisions to see a world where poverty is overcome and conflict is transformed in a constructive manner.

Our Mission

“The mission of AVORD is to uplift the poor people’s quality of life by enhancing their entrepreneurial capacity and household income, responding promptly to natural and manmade disasters and covering the urgent needs of effected communities for shelter, food, hygiene, health services and safe drinking water”
