Commitment to Diversity
GREDO is an equal opportunities employer.
GREDO is an indigenous local NGO. Non-profit non-partial, non- political and voluntary organization based in Baidoa. To reach the most affected grass-root communities in Bay and Bakool regions and lower Shebelle effectively and efficiently, the necessity of local partnership in relief program appeared. Responding to the partnership need, a group of Somali intellectuals and well-wishers initiated in December 1992 a local non-governmental organization called Gargaar Relief and Development Organization (GREDO) the organization has implemented during these period different projects including relief and emergency programs and later improved into rehabilitation and developmental programs.
The Enhancing Conditions for Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and Returning Refugees in Somalia programme, targeting Banadir, South West State, and Jubaland, will be delivered through a consortium approach of IOM (lead), Concern and Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) with the Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) supporting the learning and knowledge management component. The project will reinforce the collective outcomes developed at FGS level, the globally recognized Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Solutions Framework for durable solutions as well as addressing the main objectives of the DFID’s Somalia Humanitarian and Resilience Programme (SHARP) business case. In line with the National Development Plan (NDP), the programme aims to strengthen resilience and reduce risk and vulnerability of DACs towards durable solutions in Somalia.
GREDO is currently partnering with Concern who is member of this consortium to provide healthcare service to the internally displaced persons (IDPs), Returnees and Hosting Community in Bay region. We are looking forward to establishing teams of health workers consisting of various cadres of health professionals to deliver life saving emergency health services to the population in need through this program with high impact on lives of the most vulnerable population groups
