Where We Work
Partnerships with Development Programmes
Along with our Emergency Aid work, World Vision focuses on long-term development and World Vision Ireland has an active partnership with eight Area Development Programmes (ADPs) across five African nations: Mauritania, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Swaziland.
What is an ADP?
An ADP (Area Development Programme) is a 15-20 year community development programme, where World Vision works with an entire community to address and eradicate the causes of poverty. ADPs are a long-term approach to development, involving clear and consistent assessment, design, implementing, reporting, monitoring, evaluation and reflection phases. Each ADP is tailored to the needs of a specific community. World Vision works closely with local leaders and authorities and local partners to implement program activities.
