Addis Development Vision

“Nurturing protection of basic services among citizens.”

Addis Development Vision (ADV) is working towards a society where every citizen enjoys all forms of better life through promoting access to public basic services that can improve their lives.

The organization received a $300,000 grant to accomplish their Social Accountability programs in the target sectors of Agriculture, Education, Health, Rural Roads and Water and Sanitation.

The specific Social Accountability tools used by ADV over the next two years are Community Score Card, Public Expenditure Tracking and Citizens’ Report Card.

ADV works in 5 zones in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region (Mirab Azerent, Dalocha, Lanfuro, Sanukra, Silti). Specific beneficiaries will be women, orphans, the disabled and people living with HIV/Aids.

The organization is enhancing knowledge base and collective action of citizens and communities on Social Accountability principles and approaches. This will be done through dialogue forums among stakeholders, baseline surveys on the situation of service delivery, providing awareness trainings and workshops and organizing interface meetings between citizens and service providers.

Addis Development Vision was established by a group of volunteers in 1993 to improve the plight of disadvantaged groups in the country. The organization is experienced in grass root level development activities with a strong focus on transferring knowledge, education and mobilizing communities. ADV works directly with communities to empower civil society organizations. At the regional and national level, the projects are implemented in close collaboration with donors and the government.
