Who We Are

Relief, Reconstruction and Development Organization (RRDO) is a relief and development organization that was founded and registered in Kenya in 2008 under the NGO coordination act. The organization was formed by a group of local professionals from Northern Kenya.

The sole purpose was to respond effectively to local humanitarian challenges and contribute to development efforts through addressing humanitarian needs in Northern Kenya, especially for the refugee hosting communities. The organization was principally formed to promote local perspectives and support long term development based approach through disaster risk reduction initiatives and resilience building to minimize vulnerability to climate related hazards like floods, droughts and environmental degradation.

 

Over the years, RRDO has grown tremendously, with presence currently across three counties namely Garissa, Tana River and Kilifi counties, and with a team of more than 25 experts and staff who are involved in the implementation of the organization’s work.
