Years of Experience

From Executive Director’s Desk

As I reflect on the past year at AAIDRO, I am filled with gratitude. I am grateful for you and each of our partners who make our work possible. My gratitude for the Archdiocese leadership, our department, program and project managers, the board of governors, the staff and community partners as immense as they are at the heart of our mission.

Despite so many onset challenges in the past years presented by covid 19 pandemic, adverse effects of global change of climatic conditions, inadequate financial resources, some international development partners rapid shift of policy framework etc we have managed to remain firm in embracing our mission of implementing development processes through our programs and projects to a number of underserved community partners empowering them to be sustainable. Our success story as an Archdiocesan development non-governmental organization is rooted in our firm determination to turn each challenge especially challenges confronting our community partners and adverse situations encountered in the process of implementing our projects into productive opportunities and strength that give rise to hope and transformative change for our target local projects populations. This has always been our legacy as well as our dedicated mission. Our long-term professional experiences in project implementation offer us an added advantage to do even better as we move to the New Year guided by renewed hope, vision and mission. Our plan is to match our experiences with opportunities engendered in success. In this, we draw a lot of strength and inspiration from the renown critical hermeneutist philosopher (Paul Recour) who emphatically calls us in our development endeavors to often forge the pragmatic wisdom of matching the “The Space of Experience with the Horizon of Expectation”.
