Abs Organization was established to be a completely independent organization with no affiliation whatsoever to any entity or person or group or political party, Abs Development Organization maintains independence in all its humanitarian activities far from any interference by the government or any other political parties. Its works are based on integrity, non-discrimination and equal access to all the persons in need. It is not a subset of any organization and does not have political or ideological affiliations or leanings. ADOWC founders drafted a work constitution which is considered as guidelines adopted for regulating the electoral processes, setting main objectives of the organization, developing strategic and institutional plans once every three years and determining areas of focus for program initiatives and internal needs. The main policies and procedures are tailored to attain a high level of quality while concentrating on satisfaction of staff through continuous training and development of their skills and talents, raising their moral values, integrity and loyalty.
Abs Organization believes that a sustainable development of the community requires a democratic climate and culture constantly nurtured and reinforced by education.
Change starts from the community
Abs Organization believes that a sustainable development of the community requires a democratic climate and culture constantly nurtured and reinforced by education. Hence, a democratic society must be committed to education in the broadest sense of the terms.Positive change starts from society and shaping of citizenship based on social justice, non-discrimination, coexistence and acceptance. Hence, Abs Development Organization places great emphasis on illiteracy abolition classes, which were conducted on continuous basis in all the villages of the directorate without distinction taking into consideration that education is the most effective method for eradication and reduction of poverty which is the underlying factor for underdevelopment and the most serious impasse encountered by all developing nations worldwide.
Abs Organization believes that young people are the pillars of the national economy of the country.
Youth is a driving power to build a modern civil society
Abs Organization believes that young people are the pillars of the national economy of the country. If efforts are directed towards the preparation of the young in a constructive and peaceful manner, they can play a crucial role for promoting the dignity and fundamental rights of the citizen, fostering the economic and social development of any country, strengthening the cohesion of the society and enhancing national tranquility and global peace. All governments shall place particular efforts and emphasis to train and prepare the young people who will be in charge of public administration of the country in the future so that they can gain the talents, skills and capabilities necessary for achieving economic, social and political development. The youth should also be educatedin a spirit of understanding, tolerance, friendship among peoples, peace and universal brotherhood, and in full consciousness that their energy and talents should be devoted to the service of their fellow men and women. Hence, Abs Organization designs and implements programs designed for integration of the youth in the public development plans and directs its full focus on preparing them in a manner which protects them from practices which foster racial, religious or any other form of discrimination or violence.
Poverty is the gravest enemy of humanity and the underlying leading cause of illiteracy, spread of disease, and widespread social injustice confronting humankind.
Poverty is the gravest enemy of humanity and the underlying leading cause of illiteracy, spread of disease, and widespread social injustice confronting humankind. It is an insurmountable obstacle faced by governments in achievement of economic and social development, improvement of the living standards of their citizens and attainment of prosperity. Hence, Abs Organization places focus, mobilizes resources and jointly works with other national and international organizations to combat this obstinate enemy. Since its establishment in 1995, Abs Development Organization has been striving toeliminate or reduce poverty to lowest possible level by conducting short, medium and long term programs designed to raise the living standards of the community particularly women, youth and children who are the most vulnerable.
Education is very crucial for promoting sustainable development, securing a healthy life, ensuring gender equality, and achieving the objectives of poverty combating. By making education easily accessible to all the categories of the population, creating job opportunities and empowering women to participate in the workforce, poverty can be easily eradicable and be brought under control.
