Partnership: - Walta believes it is a change agent and champion in the lives of individuals and communities. It fully understands and upholds the fact that multifaceted challenges in any community cannot be fully addressed by a single organization or few groups, particularly, without full participation of individuals and groups that are affected by those challenges Walta focuses on. Thus, we believe full involvement of our stakeholders is critical success factor to achieve our mission, and involve partners at all levels/all steps of our programs problem identification, options appraisal, design, implementation and monitoring evolution stages. It is key for the development and the sustainability of the services offered by Walta.
