Organizations Filed Purposes: Adara's focus is on improving health and education for women, children and communities living in poverty. We are experts in maternal, newborn and child health; remote and rural community development; and the care, support and reintegration of children at risk. We also aim to change the way people think about the role of business in the world and the power of business/non-profit partnerships as well as share our expertise and experience to achieve greater impact.

Adara's purpose is to:bridge the world of business and the world of people in extreme poverty, and to support vulnerable communities with health, education and other essential services.

Maternal Newborn Child Health - Programme Support. Adara's work in Maternal Newborn Child Health makes a significant contribution to ending the preventable deaths of women, children, adolescents, and in particular, newborns. This work is primarily focused at Kiwoko Hospital located in a rural area north of the capital city of Kampala in the middle of the country.

Adara launched the "Hospital to Home" (H2H) programme, which aims to develop and pilot a holistic, low-cost, family-centred discharge and follow-up package. H2H focuses on strengthening discharge processes and practices inside the Kiwoko Hospital NICU. It also works with a network of highly trained village health teams to follow up and provide ongoing care to families at home for the first six months following discharge. By following up these babies, we will be able to identify any issues and intervene early, giving these infants the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Following the Nepal earthquake in 2015, Adara's remote community development work expanded to the district of Ghyangfedi, a small remote community in Nuwakot district, northeast of Kathmandu. Since 2016, Adara's work in Ghyangfedi has moved to long-term post-disaster interventions through the provision of education. Using the expertise gained delivering remote education programmes in Humla, Adara has built a new school for 321 students. The Shree Ghyangfedi School opened in June 2017 and is now providing high quality education for these children. Adara will continue to work hand in hand with the Nepal government to help resource the school with materials, provide children with their midday meal, and to fund three additional teachers so that the school can run most effectively.
