DAI

DAI works on the frontlines of international development. Transforming ideas into action—action into impact. We are committed to shaping a more livable world.


DAI’s mission is to make a lasting difference in the world by helping people improve their lives. We envision a world in which communities and societies become more prosperous, fairer and better governed, safer, healthier, and environmentally more sustainable.


To achieve this mission, we must be a great place to work and we must be a successful business. We need to attract and retain extraordinary talent, and provide our team with professional opportunity, fair salary and benefits, and a healthy work-life balance. We also must perform as a business so that we can meet our obligations, invest in our future, and reward our employee owners. The more successful we are as a business, the greater development impact we can have.


In everything we do, we live by four core values:


  • Integrity: we have an uncompromising commitment to civility and ethical behavior. We play by the rules and do the right thing.
  • Responsibility: we are accountable to our clients, our colleagues, and the communities where we work. If we fall short, we own up, fix the problem, and get it right the next time.
  • Excellence: we demand of ourselves the highest technical and professional standards. We celebrate innovation, learning, and service. We have an unwavering desire to “stretch,” as individuals and as an organization.
  • Global Citizenship: we are a global company with a global outlook. We depend on our diversity, respect the cultures in which we work, and treat everyone, everywhere with professionalism and dignity. We thrive on collaboration with our partners around the world, and share with them the hope that our work will leave the world a better place.

General

155 households live in Gatebe 2 village in Rwanda, situated at the bottom of a hill . Due to heavy rain and unsustainable practices the community is hit by erosion and land degradation, threatening their subsistence farming livelihoods. Rwanda Development Organisation (RDO) plans to combat this situation by restoring the landscape by planting trees and improving drainage, and by sensitising the community about sustainable practices, including the distribution of 50 goats for organic manure.
