PRESS RELEASE: TOGETHER Project

Following the announcement by The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada, ADRA Kenya is pleased to be partnering with ADRA Canada to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people, especially women and girls, in Cambodia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Uganda can exercise their health-related human rights.

With assistance from Canada, over the next six years, the Uniting Towards Gender Equality for the enjoyment of women’s and girls’ Total Health and Rights (TOGETHER) project will work to increase the enjoyment of health-related rights for the most vulnerable children, adolescent girls and boys, and women and men in Cambodia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Uganda, especially those with intersecting vulnerabilities in indigenous, remote or resettlement settings.

Many of our most vulnerable people face significant barriers to quality healthcare and cannot exercise their rights regarding their health. TOGETHER will address several of these issues, particularly focusing on indigenous, remote, or resettled areas.

In speaking about the project, ADRA Canada’s Executive Director, Steve Matthews, said, “I thank Global Affairs Canada for selecting ADRA as a trusted partner to make a positive difference in the thousands of lives who will be empowered by the TOGETHER project and our Network partners without whom this project would not be possible.”

We at ADRA Kenya look forward to delivering transformational programming through our partnerships with SickKids, Salanga, and the ADRA offices in Canada, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Uganda.

The network: Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (or ADRA) is the official humanitarian agency of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a 20-million strong community, with hundreds of thousands of churches globally and the world’s largest integrated healthcare and education network.

ADRA is a global network. ADRA offices in over 118 countries are locally registered and recognized. Each country office is registered in the country where it is established and is responsible to a local Board of Directors. As a network, ADRA implements thousands of projects, benefiting millions of people each year—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, gender, or religious association.

Founded in 1956 as the Seventh-day Adventist Welfare Service (SAWS) and renamed ADRA in 1984, the agency has a long and successful history of providing humanitarian relief and implementing development initiatives.

By partnering with communities, organizations, and governments, the ADRA network is able to deliver culturally relevant programs, build local capability for sustainable change and improve the quality of life of millions.

The ADRA network annual program expenses total approximately US$200 million—made possible through private contributions from individuals like you, corporations, foundations, and other entities. It also obtains funding and commodities from governmental and intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations.

ADRA does not proselytize. God’s love in ADRA’s programs is expressed when it reaches out to those in need regardless of race, gender, and political, or religious affiliation. We work in harmony with a broad array of cultures, traditions, and peoples of all faiths, respecting the human dignity of all.
