Welcome to DUBAF

Development by Unity and Brotherly Action for Futures
Empowering communities for a brighter future


The Home Office of DUBAF is located in Guji, Ethiopia, an area that experiences high climatic variability and recurrent droughts. The frequency of droughts has been increasing, causing severe erosion of assets and chronic vulnerability to food insecurity for the pastoral and agrarian communities in the area. The region has also been marginalized in terms of education and infrastructure, with no rural girls completing high school before the establishment of DUBAF in 2002 and no all-weather road crossing the vast geographic area. Despite being rich in socio-cultural values, the community has been derogatorily labeled in the past.
DUBAF has been operating in various zones of Oromia, SNNP, and Gambella regional states for the past two decades and plans to expand its program interventions over the southern central part of the country, which includes the Borana lowlands, the southern Rift Valley depression, Bale highlands, and west Arsi zone in Oromia regional state. The organization aims to address the inequitable social and geographic marginalization of the area and improve the livelihoods of communities in the region.

Empowering Women through the Women Training Center Project

Empowering women and promoting gender equality is crucial for sustainable development. However, in many parts of the world, women are still struggling to have access to education, training, and job opportunities.

This is where initiatives like the Women Training Center project come in. The project, which was initiated by DUBAF and supported by the Rotary Club of Swan City/Canada, aims to establish a training center where women can learn textile technology and other business skills to enhance their capacity and self-reliance.

Located in Haraqallo, the Women's Training Center is equipped with different materials for training and practices, including computers, sewing machines, and electronic instruments. With a budget of 250,000 Birr, the project has been able to establish a state-of-the-art facility that is now an asset not only for the women groups who receive training but also for the wider community. The center has become a hub for community meetings and different capacity building activities for other partners.

The Women Training Center project is part of a larger effort to promote gender equality and empower women in the region. By providing women with access to education and training opportunities, the project aims to enhance their skills and knowledge, and help them become more self-sufficient. This, in turn, can lead to more economic opportunities, improved health outcomes, and greater social empowerment for women.

The project is made possible through the generous support of the Rotary Club of Swan City/Canada, which has provided the funding needed to establish the Women Training Center. Their commitment to empowering women and promoting sustainable development is an inspiration to us all.

In conclusion, the Women Training Center project is a vital initiative that is helping to empower women and promote gender equality in the region. By providing women with access to education and training opportunities, the project is helping to enhance their capacity and self-reliance, which can lead to more economic opportunities, improved health outcomes, and greater social empowerment. We applaud the Rotary Club of Swan City/Canada for their generous support of this important project and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the lives of women in the region.
