Alatta for Relief and Development was established as a charitable cooperative development association by virtue of the permit no. (003523) issued on 1/1/2011. The beginning was in Saada governorate in Yemen, which was historically known as the City of Peace, but for more than a decade became a flaming area and witnessed destruction and affected rest of the public services in Saada at the time. Although simple beginning with few resources and absence law, but youth founders’ faith made progress in human rights field in accelerated steps, relying on the institution’s ability to speed up the development of institutional and capacity building, and to draw on learned lessons from reality of performance and its ability to assess performance and overcome weaknesses where they exist. ARD commitment to principle of transparency and quality performance in projects implementation as planned have had a significant impact on donor trust and respect by target group. ARD activities and projects have been expanded in few years. Also, the name and the brand officially “Alatta for Social Development and charity” has changed to Alatta for Relief and Development under the permit no. (003564) issued on 24/2/2014 (last name is not included). Current war, which has been going on for almost three years, has destroyed the rest of the already fragile infrastructure and has contributed in displacement of hundreds of thousands to other districts within the governorate or to other governorates. With the collapse of state institutions, ARD was the main active SCOs for aids providers in the most ardent and most dangerous governorates and implemented many life-saving projects, micro-recovery projects and won appreciation of donors and target groups.
