Our Approach


Our programmes in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) focus on increasing access to water, sanitation and hygiene services, while building the capacity to manage WASH interventions at the local level.


Core to our programming is a focus on rights attainment and strengthening of community based protection. Working in partnerships with state and non- state actors, HIJRA uses the Age, gender and diversity approach, to holistically meet the protection needs of men women, girls and boys.


Our livelihood programming in Somalia and Uganda largely aims to contribute to improved resilience and increased adaptive capacities of communities and households to protect their livelihoods over continuing shocks.


Our infrastructure programme focuses on improving access to services mainly through road construction and ensuring access to shelter for vulnerable persons.


Our programmes address the health needs of the poor and marginalized communities in South Central Somalia. Some of the key focus areas are reduction in maternal and infant mortality, reducing malnutrition, construction of new and rehabilitation of existing health infrastructure.


Our nutrition Programmes focus on basic life-saving and community resilience-building activities in prioritized geographical areas, including locations with high prevalence of malnutrition, such as IDP settlements and host communities, as well as preventive nutrition programmes.
