OHA strives to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs) while strictly adhering the humanitarian principles, and key elements of good governance; participation, transparency and accountability.
The intention is to alleviate sever suffering, spread awareness, enable people to become selfemployed and self-dependent at village, district and city levels for boosting rural and urban economy and livelihood in consultation with donors and local communities.

Close relations with people in particular with Shuras, community elders, religious leaders, and
having a professional and experienced team are the key factors of OHA’s successful work in the
remote and unsecure geographical areas.
Our areas of work include; irrigation (canals, culverts, bridges, flood protection), education

(management training, vocational training), drinking water (drilling wells and extending water
supply), health system (construction of infrastructure), provision of humanitarian assistance

or new offices are established, may the nature of the project require it.
