The NDA network has decided to invest its work in capacity-building and more focused and structured initiatives in advocacy. The network has solidarity as a value and has experienced it as an essential mechanism for the empowerment of all actors in the field or even more for the advocacy. We have expanded our network to include neighboring countries as well, with their similar cultural environments and to create a voice for the change of public policies.
