Uplift Relief and development agency
Making Tangible Contributions to SDGs in Somalia
Uplift Relief’s integrity framework
We seek to apply these value commitments in the interaction with our key stakeholders, including beneficiaries, partners, donors, and colleagues. For that purpose, Uplift’s Relief Integrity Framework was developed, comprising of three main pillars: integrity standards and norms, reporting complaints, and addressing complaints.
Communication Training Awareness raising
Uplift Relief supports life-saving interventions in the face of emergency and disasters.
Beyond relief, we seek to break the culture of donor dependency by building resilient social and economic structures in communities.
We partner not only with the conventional donors but also with Somalis in the diaspora and the local business community.
We are committed to providing aid to people who would otherwise have little or no chance of getting it.
Uplift Relief aims to leave lasting impact on the lives of its target groups.
What Drive us
Uplifts is passionate about making a tangible impact in the achievement of relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Somalia. Specifically, our programming aims to contribute to 4 SDGs:
Target #1.1: By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day.
Target # 3.2: “By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births.”
Target # 3.3: “By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1,000 live births and under‑5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1,000 live births.”
Target # 4.1: By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes.
Target # 4.2: By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education.
Target # 6.1: “By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.”
Target # 6.2: “By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.”
Our working context
According to 2023 UNOCHA’s situation analysis, the humanitarian situation in Somalia continues to deteriorate. The severe drought, hunger, disease and violence merge to bring Somalia to the brink of famine. An estimated 8.25 million people (1.5 million children under five, 1.8 million girls (five to 17 years), 1.8 million boys (five to 17 years), 1.3 million women, 1.4 million men and 412,000 elderly) require humanitarian assistance. Significant segments of the population are on the brink of famine. In the absence of sufficient funding and enhanced capacity, Famine is projected between April and June 2023 and beyond for three population groups in the following areas: Baidoa and Burhakaba Rural districts as well as IDPs in Baidoa and Mogadishu
