Welcoming Note from the CEO
H. Jackson Brown Jr states that, “Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts” I make the same claim for HAARAN. It’s true that, we as an organization are small organization, with lean team and small funding base. Yet you will notice from this website that HAARAN has passion and desire to be an organization that works for all-inclusive change. Personally, being a native of Horn of Africa compounded with my status of disability, running HAARAN has been both risky and rewarding. It takes a lot of hard work and discipline to overcome the failures that are guaranteed to have and a lot of persistence to maintain the energy and focus it requires to both attain and uphold HAARAN’s dream.Our dream is to be the bridge of positive change to the PWDs and other vulnerable persons.We together shall strive towards empowering vulnerable groups of the society through partnerships and sustainable programs for growth and development that are inclusive and sensitive to the needs of PWDs. As a growing organization, HAARAN has learnt many lessons and overcome its share of challenges. Today, we are open for more friendship that will help us determine more inclusive destiny for all. The task of perfecting our response to the ever-growing needs among our beneficiaries’ makes steady progress. We move forward because of our collective strength and will.What we offer is an intimate solution, influenced by a broader perspective gained from our work and network. We can contribute to change through our persistence on quality work that are done. I therefore call upon you to embrace HAARAN in earnest way possible to help us effectively provide interventions to ensure optimal health, social services, and economic empowerment, access to education, improved leadership and governance for our beloved people.
