| Our Vision
Our vision is a world where social organisation is arranged by partnership, where self-determination enhances the potential for co-operation and there is a more equitable distribution of resources in order to eradicate poverty and to develop the capabilities of disadvantaged communities.
We look forward to a time when equality and justice prevail, human dignity is preserved, diversity is celebrated and discrimination is eradicated, and when there is a deeper and more compassionate understanding of the position of disadvantaged people in a global society.
IDP is transforming the lives of disadvantaged communities in Ethiopia by providing access to the basic services necessary to sustain life - such as affordable health care, a clean and reliable water supply, hygienic sanitation facilities, adequate nutrition and a basic level of education.
IDP is committed to the empowerment and support of local initiatives and our efforts are focused on relieving the underlying causes of poverty, suffering and distress by working in partnership with indigenous organisations to strengthen existing institutional capacity. We believe that support to local organisations, and the empowerment of local people, is crucial in bringing about effective and lasting change.
