WHAT WE DO

ADRA Canada, part of a world-wide ADRA network, has been working to end extreme poverty in some of the poorest areas of our world since 1985.

In order to break cycles of extreme poverty and bring about lasting, positive change, it is necessary to commit to long term, integrated programs that provide multiple interventions that bring water, sanitation, and health, food and nutrition, education and income opportunities. ADRA has been working to deliver programs and respond to disasters internationally and domestically. We are running specific programs in multiple countries.

To achieve these goals, we collaborate with local governments, ADRA network offices, our partners and other organizations. Together, we are working to lift people out of poverty, establish hope, empower communities, and provide positive change.
