 Ethiopian Center for Disability and Development (ECDD) is an Ethiopian Development Organization established in 2005 and reregistered at Agency for Civil Society Organizations as Ethiopian Development Civil Society Organization with Certificate ? 0321 under the Proclamation ? 1113/2019. ECDD is working with other organizations to promote and facilitate the inclusion of persons with disabilities and disability issues in mainstream service delivery and development programs envisioning “an Inclusive Ethiopia” where persons with disabilities exercise the same rights and have access to the same services and opportunities enjoyed by other citizens.

The project is designed with the objective of strengthening Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Organizations for Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) in their lobby and advocacy for sustainable and inclusive access to basic resources, contributing to improved food security. To achieve its objective, the project will work through three strategically linked pathways-1) community mobilization , 2) CSO and OPDs capacity building, and 3) engaging local authorities .

To create sustainable and inclusive access to basic resources, evidence-based lobby and advocacy is deployed as a strategy.
