Project code:
OSRO/HAI/802/AUS
Objective:

To strengthen the livelihoods of beneficiary households by improving their productive capacities through the implementation of new production techniques for gardens.

Key partners:

Local authorities, as well as national and international Non-governmental Organizations.

Beneficiaries reached:

803 vulnerable families.

Activities implemented:
  • Identified plots of land to install garden demonstration centres, as well as local associations to monitor community activities.
  • Distributed agricultural kits including tools (hoes, pickaxes, rakes, trowels and watering cans) and vegetable seeds (tomato, beet, eggplant, spinach, Napa cabbage, bell pepper, okra and Anaheim pepper).
  • Distributed 137 water tanks with a capacity of approximately 125 gallons, four with a capacity of 500 gallons and six with a capacity of 600 gallons.
  • Trained Support Committee members on project cycle management and marketing.
Impact:
  • Installed only two of the six garden demonstration centres, owing to difficulties encountered with the water supply.
  • Installed two community micro-gardens with the distribution of seeds and tools.
  • The short timeframe for project implementation did not allow to fully assess the impact that the intervention had on direct beneficiaries.
