ADRA Azerbaijan assists individuals and communities without reference to ethnic, political or religious affiliation. It simply helps people in need, especially the most vulnerable, through the delivery of services and promotion of self-help initiatives based upon a participatory community development approach. ADRA Azerbaijan registered as a not-for-profit legal entity in the Republic of Azerbaijan is a partner organization of ADRA International, an independent international humanitarian agency founded in 1984 for the specific purposes of individual and community development and disaster relief. ADRA International currently operates in over 90 countries and provides programs and assistance to over 20 million people worldwide. Because of this the United Nations granted ADRA a general consultative status since 1997. \f0\b0 \ \f2\b ADRA Azerbaijan has extensive experience and knowledge of working in Azerbaijan having recently completed its 18-year anniversary of program and relief activities.
