ARDD: Annual Report 2012
Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development-Legal Aid - ARDD is a Jordanian nongovernmental organization first founded as “Legal Aid” in 2008. After 4 years of specialized operation in providing pro bono legal services, we expanded our mission and work into the development field. Thus in January 2012, ARDD-Legal Aid was born. ARDD-LA is an Arab rights-based organization that is dedicated to fighting injustice through the promotion of human rights, democracy, and inclusive development in Jordan and across the Middle East and North Africa. We frame our work through our commitment to an all-encompassing understanding of development and one that facilitates the realization of people's social, economic, cultural, and political rights. We forge development relations and partnerships regionally and internationally. Our vision is to find a just and stable world free of oppression and injustice. To that end, we empower marginalized and vulnerable groups to acquire their rights. We also motivate other stakeholders to meet their obligations towards the marginalized through providing solutions to victims and holding violators accountable.
