Huvadhoo Aid (HAD) is a non-governmental, youth organization located in Huvadhoo Atoll. It was founded in 1987 as Hoadedhdhoo Zuvananunge Jamiyya and then renamed to Hoadedhdhoo Association for Development in 1997 following restructuring of the organization. It was again renamed as Huvadhoo Aid in 2010, after major changes in its focus areas.
HAD´s mission is to achieve rural socio-economic development of youth, women, disabled people and the community, as well as to increase active citizenship and civic participation, strengthen civil society organizations, promote responsible governance, and improve the image of the Maldives throughout the world.
