Helping young people and adults develop the skills they need to lead more productive, peaceful, and self-sufficient lives is a core part of CODHNET’s work. We collaborate with key people from local communities to co-create training programs that meet the specific skill requirements of each community.

Our training programs have an important, practical role to play in our humanitarian and development work.

This includes:

  • Helping vulnerable people improve their livelihoods or gain a new livelihood
  • Promoting disaster risk reduction strategies at the community level
  • Encouraging good hygiene and sanitation practices for improved community health
  • Promoting sustainable natural resource management to better protect livelihoods like pastoralism


Technical Support

 At African Development Organization (CODHNET), we value the power of empowerment in providing technical know-how and transfer of Technology. In the Horn of Africa, 55% of the total land is arable and only 2% are cultivated. In order to defeat poverty, large scale economic development programs are needed to stimulate the local economy. For example the provision of technical and marketing support to the local farmers with corporate farming will not only improve food security in the region but will also create income generation and will improve the livelihoods of millions of Somalis. Currently, African Development Organization (CODHNET) provides small scale technical support such as; irrigation canals, farming land preparations and seeds supply to the poor farmers.


African Development Organization (CODHNET) provides financial, marketing and technical support to help poor families in starting up gainful small business such as; small shops, bakery, grain-milling shops and tailoring. This is typical small scale income generation programs intended to stimulate the local economy, improve livelihoods and fight poverty. These programs have already benefited hundreds of poor families who now have income of their own and their livelihoods have improved
