Working at IRD is about making a difference in other people's lives and seeing the impact all over the world, every day. Our mission is to reduce the suffering of the world's most vulnerable groups and provide the tools and resources needed to increase their self-sufficiency.

IRD is a nonprofit humanitarian and development organization dedicated to improving the lives and livelihoods of the world’s most vulnerable people, especially those in conflict and post-conflict environments. We place a premium on building lasting relationships, developing our partners’ capacity to create sustainable change, and empowering individuals and communities to lead their own development.

To build stable and sustainable communities, IRD believes the most effective development programs are implemented collaboratively and build local capacity for the long term. Our programs operate from the belief that the proper resources and technical expertise enable people to draw on their own knowledge and strength to seize opportunities, transform challenges into solutions, and build stronger, more vibrant communities.
