The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) is a global humanitarian organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, following Christ’s example of being a voice for, serving, and partnering with those in need regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, political or religious affiliation. ADRA is the agency that the church has chosen as a primary tool in the work of trying to address social distortions and deprivation. ADRA can be viewed as the church’s desire to improve the situation for those in needs. ADRA’s relationship to the Church is central to the mission of both.
Our mission is to work with people in poverty and distress to create positive change and justice, through empowering partnerships and responsible action. ADRA Indonesia is part of the ADRA Network, with a presence in 125 countries.
As part of a global network, each ADRA office works under a similar vision, mission and belief statement. There is a uniform method for the planning, approval and implementation of projects and there is a desire to achieve ‘best practice’ in all activities. ADRA offices are divided into two functions, considered either as a supporting partner office or an implementing partner office.
