As ECDD grows in stature, both in terms of size and presence, as a leading Ethiopian organization that promotes disability-inclusive development, it has become necessary to modify the way ECDD organizes itself and implements its activities. Thus it is decided to shift from being a project-oriented to a program-oriented organization. This represents a major shift in organizational strategy that will lead to better-informed program design, firmly rooted in the needs and challenges of persons with disabilities and their organizations.

Adopting a programmatic approach will also allow ECDD to have greater autonomy in planning and realizing its own vision and organizational goals, and seeking financial and organizational resources. A program approach will also help ensure longer-term sustainability of programs for maximum impact and benefit for persons with disabilities, their families and society as a whole
