Support Our Work


To alleviate poverty, reduce vulnerability and improve socio-economic wellbeing through sound leadership, strategic partnership/collaboration, and social innovation to bring about caring, vibrant and self-reliant pastoralist communities that are socio-economically sustainable and resilient to cope and withstand environmental shocks/disasters. 


Somali-Ethiopian Social & Economic Development Association is a community-based organization (CBOs), non-profit, non-governmental, non-partisan, and development-oriented organization that was established for the sole motive of developing marginalized communities in the pastoral areas of Ethiopia in close collaboration with international aid organizations (NGOs), regional government as well as international development actors (donor state bodies).  SESEDA is committed to working for the beneficiary community at the grassroots level, focusing on the empowerment of women, health, education, economic development, capacity buildings and natural resource mobilization, pastoral community development, and technical training for youth.


“if people get together they could mend a crack in the sky” Somali Proverb. “Be a mountain or lean on one” also a Somali Proverb. Those two proverbs summarize the vision of SESEDA’s vision.
