Project Description

Overall Objectives:

  • To contribute to food security and poverty reduction of the most vulnerable groups among the rural population of the target provinces of the project.
  • To improve the capacity of civil society and local authorities to be able to contribute to the long-term development of the most vulnerable groups in rural areas.

Specific Objective: To strengthen the capacities of Farmer Organizations structured in federation{comma} Commune Councils and district extension agencies (as local direct support institutions) to long-lasting support for food security activities from rural poorest families.

The main ideas of this project is to  work together with the most advanced Farmers Organisations and Commune Councils so they directly support the most vulnerable households in their areas. In this frame{comma} we denominate FO and CC as Direct Support Institutions (DSI).

On one hand{comma} we provide Trainings of Trainers to DSI on methodological aspects: conduct initial assessment to the target villages{comma} identify the most relavant activities to support{comma} provide technical trainings{comma} follow-up and advaises to farmers. They are also involved in the coordination of the project in their province.

On the other hand{comma} most vulnerable farmers are individually surveyed through a pro-poor survey and are directly involved in identigying the activities for which they will be supported. These support are provided in the fram eof their family strategic plan. Then they receive training{comma} follow-up and advises for all activities{comma} as well as incentives to encourage them in their priority activity. A large panel of activities is proposed to farmers : improved techniques for agricultural and animal productions{comma} marketing{comma} awareness raissing on health and nutrition{comma} digging of community or individual ponds{comma} wells and construuctions of latrines.

Thanks to WFP{comma} we can also propose them Food For Asset activities: construction or rehabilitation ofcommunnity ponds{comma} roads{comma} canals{comma} dike.
