Our projects are based on our reflective practices, lessons learned and the past experiences of our patrons, board members, and volunteers that all together cumulated rich wealth of multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary competencies to address the emerging and evolving world challenges to find out possible solution to the four major global frameworks, 1) Sandi Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction(SFDRR)-2030, 2)Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)-2030, 3) Paris declaration on climate change 2015, and 4) Global Humanitarian Summit to contribute towards a peaceful and sustainable planet.
JAD Foundation’s name inculcates the three core thematic focus areas:
justice denotes placing things in their rightful place, giving others equal treatment, a moral virtue an attribute of human personality and the fulfillment of capacities and the observance and vindication of all rights. Justice and peace for living and nonliving creature, for future generations of all species- the right to be, the right to habitat, and the right to fulfil its role in the ever-renewing processes of the Earth community. Justice to Socioeconomic, political, ecological rights regardless of gender, ethnic origin, race, social status, age, nationality, religion or planetary origin, and responsibility of stewardship of the planet.
Seeking support at multi-level, including individual, community, private organizations, corporate sector, donors and governments and giving assistance, and providing support to marginalized and vulnerable humanity who are denied fundamental rights, exposed to ultra-poverty, food insecurity, water scarcity, energy and physical security owing to climate and disaster risks, conflict, violence and terrorism, gender, religion and culture discrimination, oppression. Provision of Aid/support to community and organizations for prevention, preparedness, adaptation and mitigation, and provision of equitable and gender inclusive access to education, basic health, sanitation, water, food and energy security, awareness and research through partnership/collaboration, with the overall objective of justice to all creatures on the earth.

- Mobilization strategy will support both planning and implementation of the community owned projects and reducing the cost of disaster and climate change, support peace building and conflict transformation and engaging youth in the decision making and leadership program towards contributing to global agenda of sustainable development.
- Motivation is a continue process of actions that will constantly engage and involve the communities in global citizenry through positive change in the attitude and behavior of youth in peacebuilding, risk reduction, climate change adaptation and sustainable development.
- Coordination strategy will fuel our approach to work with multi-stakeholders for comprehensive and integrated development at all level.
- Collaboration will save and avoid duplication/overlapping of development resources and ensure multi-stakeholders engagement/involvement in the overall development and political decision.
- Leverage will bring different stakeholder on a common platform for collective understanding and action for the common cause.
- Educational strategy is a key element of the JAD Educational Action Plan to attract talented youth and prepare our youth to meet the challenges of 21st century. With the support of all the players in the research and education fields and lobby for policy change to develop a common strategy for country to country that will provide equal and equitable opportunities to all youth to contribute to the cause of no child left behind education by 2050.
- Technology is both a challenges and opportunity for the youth. The youth knowledge, capacity, and competency required adaptation to the rapidly evaluating technological advancement. Our strategy will promote the capacity of our youth to adapt the technology for productive and positive changes in their socioeconomic development and global citizenry.
- Knowledge is a key factor in human evaluation and development. Our youth project will constantly support youth knowledge building in line with the 21st century requirement.
- Skills development strategy of JAD will enhance the competency of our youth to enable them with the emerging market demands for job and employment. Our education system is not supporting skill based education and there remained a gap between the academic background and practical application of the knowledge/skill the student earned during the study.
- Capacity strategy will encourage the youth to be engaged in the youth in the civic and ecosystem to ensure exposure to out of box thinking.
- Our education system is not supporting research and practices. Under our strategy we will engage youth in internship program, social and economic activities from beginning and for this purpose partnership will be made with educational institution, corporate sector and private institutions.
- Trust and confidence building is the best tools for success of any program. We understand the cultural, religious and social sensitivity of the people across the world who will be respected all the time. The bureaucratic and NGOs culture has damaged the trust and confidence of the common people that will be restored and practiced. This is how we have seen our projects success.
- Respecting to humankind regardless to nationality, gender, religion, cultural and ethnic values and norms
- Respecting to the creature of God on the earth. “And the sky He hath uplifted; and He hath set the measure, that ye exceed not the measure, but observe the measure strictly, nor fall short thereof.” (55:7-9).
