Though Ato Woldeamanuel Dubale passed away ,in November 2007 in London accidentally, before finalizing realization of his dreams for betterment of Sidama nation and other neglected communities, his principles and vision have been picked up by his family members, co-workers and friends, both in Ethiopia and abroad, and thus resulted in establishment of Woldeamanuel Dubale Foundation (WaDF).
WaDF is a non-political, non-religious, non-racial, and non-profit-making development organization which has been registered by Ethiopian Charities and Societies Agency, as Ethiopian Residents Charity, bybearing certificate No. 2622.

The overall goal of WaDF is contributing to the community development efforts in Ethiopia to change the livelihood potential of marginalized and disadvantaged communities through demand driven, gender sensitive, integrated and sustainable development interventions.
WaDF envisions seeing Sidama nation and other disadvantaged nations and nationalities with improved economic status, preservation of beneficial socio-cultural values, well conserved natural environment and better standard of living.
For fulfilment of its purposes, the foundation implements demand driven, gender sensitive, integrated and sustainable programs and projects among disadvantaged and marginalized communities to bring forth increased employment, food self-sufficiency, improved services delivery, capacitated and self-motivated community groups and improved infrastructure among others.
