Project Officer

Dodoth Agro-Pastoralist Development Organization (DADO) is a local, non-Governmental, non-political non-profit making organization founded in July 1996 by the agro-pastoralist communities in Kaabong district. As a community based Organization (CBO), DADO was to provide livestock extension services and other related efforts to bring peace and reconciliation among the ethnic groups in north Karamoja. After a decade of its operation as a CBO the organisation was formally registered as a national Non-Governmental Organisation – NGO with the NGO board.

DADO is founded on the principles of working with the most marginalized agro-pastoral and minority communities with a broader call toward providing a holistic approach to community development. It focuses on supporting community development initiatives through building resilience, peace & reconciliation, protection and promotion of pastoralist and minority groups’ rights, including livelihoods enhancement among the pastoralists’ communities in the triangular board areas of north-eastern Uganda, north-western Kenya and south-eastern South Sudan.
