What we do

WAD is involved in Socio-economic and Socio-political programs since its inception in 1994. To compliment this effort, WAD established 2 Training Centres which are under the supervision of WAD head office although they are operating more independently.

These 2 training centres include; Omahenene Training Centre in the Northern part of the Country, and Karas Training Centre in the southern part of the Country. These centres are well equipped to run socio-economic activities and thereby generation their own resources to be-self sustainable.
