Organisation in Ethiopia
IHA-UDP (2005 - 2012)
The NGO Integrated Holistic Approach-Urban Development Project [ihaudp.org] is mainly financed through donations.
The main concern of IHA-UDP is the so called bottom-up approach, a system of support starting from the bottom and working its way up in a holistic way: Integrating each individual with their personal needs, they try to find a solution to the problems they are facing.

Once a self-contained community has been established IHA-UDP will retreat from this area.
