Delivering Lasting Impact!

Integrated Programming for Better Outcomes!

RET’s multi-sectoral approach guarantees the complementary nature of actions and the interdependence between them. It provides a comprehensive approach to bridge the multi-dimensional needs of young people and women, achieves more significant and long-lasting results, and reduces wasteful duplication. 

Bridging the Gaps | HDP Nexus

The Humanitarian, Development, Peace (HDP) Nexus.
The inclusion of the peace dimension in the nexus acknowledges the vital importance of conflict sensitivity in ending humanitarian need, reducing poverty, and ensuring sustainable development.

RET’s Areas of Intervention

RET´s experience operating within and across multiple sectors in both humanitarian and development contexts enables us to incorporate relevant components from one or several sectors (multi-sectorial solutions) that can effectively address many of the challenges facing vulnerable young people and women, their families, and the communities where they live. 

Why Our Mission Matters?

Through its unique mandate centered on young people, and on women & girls, RET bridges the gaps between humanitarian action and development aid, adding a peace dimension to its interventions.

This is what we refer to as the
Humanitarian – Development – Peace (HDP) Triple Nexus.

Mandate & Values!

What Guides Our Action and Strengthens Our Relationships?
These are the ideas and concepts we strive to live by in our day-to-day work with young people, women & girls, donors, partners, and amongst ourselves.
