IIDA Women’s Organisation for Development is a women-led non-profit organization founded in 1991 in Mogadishu, Somalia by a group of pioneering Somali women leaders to provide relief and emergency services to women and children affected by the civil war in Somalia. Over the years, IIDA has evolved into an organization that focuses on evidence-based peace-building and state-building interventions, policy development, and strengthening accountability of government institutions. IIDA advocates for the socio-economic rights of vulnerable children, youth, and women, and promotion of peace among communities in Somalia and Kenya.
