Who we are
Uplift Relief & Development Agency (Uplift Relief) is a dynamic Somali-based agency that delivers emergency relief and implements long term, resilience-building projects at community level. Uplift Relief is a nonprofit, nonpolitical and non-religious NGO registered in Somalia in April 2019 with Certificate of Registration Number 754. Uplift Relief was established in response to multiple humanitarian crises – COVID-19 pandemic, the extraordinary 2021-2023 drought, prolonged conflict, endless displacements and violence across Somalia.
Uplift Relief was initially registered in Baidoa, South West State of Somalia, and later licensed by the Federal Government of Somalia to operate in all other states. It is headquartered in Baidoa with field offices and teams in other administrative states.
Our Core Values
Our values guide the manner in which we complete our daily work. They are the basis on which we interact with each other and with our target groups.
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.
