Dires for Development Charitable Association is an Ethiopian NGO with its own management and board. The organization is led by a board that consists completely out of people who have a disability. Also, the general manager and his admin worker have a disability themselves. Including as many people with a disability as we can, is a central part of our policy.

We strive to a small overhead as possible. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we had to downsize our organization and we have chosen to cut in the management layers. We have one general manager who supervises all projects. The projects are led by the professionals who are involved themselves. Together, they take responsibility for the daily execution of the work.
