Review for Adar Foundation For Reparation & Development Of Somalia, Falls Church, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over 90% of the funding goes to straight to the people and the remaining 10% goes to poor women who manage feeding centers. The women who work at the feeding center use the salary (roughly 10%) to support their children's needs. None of the management team gets paid at all.

The unique aspect of this agency, and other Somali managed agencies, is that their reach and penetration to small villages that other international agencies cannot reach due to limitations of language, culture, familiariy with the area.

I got to know the president of the company, Sadia Aden, MD, MS. She does not get paid out of this organization and none of the management team.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their capacity with more training and funding to expand their services which cannot meet the demands.

Role:  Donor & donate.
