About ADRA: Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is a global humanitarian agency of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church currently operating in over 120 countries including Tanzania. We exist to serve humanity so all may live as God intended.

We enable Change & Well-Being
ADRA acts as a catalyst for change by inspiring, engaging and empowering people to strive together for the greater good. In doing so, ADRA embodies values that are grounded in human dignity and respect for peoples’ innate capabilities, expressed through ADRA’s commitment to well-being as its core development objective, taking a holistic approach to programs, humanitarian response, and advocacy. For ADRA, ‘holistic’ refers to spiritual, social, and physical dimensions, addressing the multi-faceted causes of poverty, and to the emergency relief—reform dimension of our work.

ADRA exists to enable people to live life to the full, physically, socially, and spiritually. We associate this fullness with the concept of well-being, which remains ADRA’s long-term, over-arching aim. In its most tangible forms individual well-being derives from access and opportunities in relation to three key areas: Education, Health and Sustainable Livelihoods. They shape what is described as ADRA’s Well-being Triangle.

ADRA aims to address equitable development for women, girls, and minorities, whilst aiming to ensure protection for the most vulnerable.
ADRA believes that a life lived to the full is marked by an active concern for others. A life lived to the full is one where our abundance—to whatever extent that may be—of health, knowledge, resources, relationships, and spirituality, is exercised through generosity towards others.
