Who we are

Support for Sustainable Development (SSD) is a national, non-profit making, resident charity established in May 2003 to support the development initiatives of the poor, neglected and marginalized communities of Ethiopia in general, and the Afar pastoralists residing in the extremely hostile and arid climate of the Awash Valley within the main Ethiopian Rift Valley System in particular. SSD has registered with Charities and Societies Agency (CSA) with registration #0034.

The organization was established by volunteer Ethiopians with common ambition and commitment of seeing a country whose citizens are economically self-sustained and are no more dependent on others’ support. The members came together with the belief that it is possible to make a difference on the lives of many by using the best of the local resources and the people. SSD’s livelihood support programs mainly focus on Afar region to support the development of marginalized pastoral Afar communities.
