    External Stakeholders

  • These are institutions, organizations and role players whose core progrmmes and activities are very relevant to ADAAL's mission and to the attainment of its objectives. These stakeholders are actual or potential implementing partners of ADAAL.

  • Ministries of Education, Health, Gender, Youth, Sports & Recreation, Tourism, Trade & Industry, Social Development, Home Affairs and Police Services.

     

    Though these stakeholders have not been fully involved in the process of the strategic planning, ADAAL still values their participation in the implementation of its programmes. For example, the Ministry of Education is the custodian of the schools which accommodate ADAAL's main target group; youth. As a result, the ministry expects ADAAL to deliver quality preventive measures which will promote a conducive learning environment and good image of the schools.

     

    The Ministry of Health is the custodian of the HIV/AIDS policy, the behaviour change strategies and health education including public health. The different units and departments within the ministry expect ADAAL to play a role in the prevention of communicable and non-communicable diseases.

     

    ADAAL is in the process of signing a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education. It is also in the process of mobilizing resources for construction of a Rehabilitation Center which is very much in demand since there is none in the country now.
