Project code:
OSRO/SUD/414/ITA
Objective:

To improve the food and nutrition security of vulnerable farming and herding farmers affected by high malnutrition rates in Tokar and Haya Localities of Red Sea State.

Key partners:

Federal and State Ministries of Agriculture and of Animal Resources and their departments, NGOs and local communities.

Beneficiaries reached:

7 000 vulnerable households.

Activities implemented:
  • Distributed 10 tonnes of sorghum and millet seeds, 24 tonnes of legume seeds, 1.2 tonnes of vegetable seeds, 1 500 tree seedlings and 9 000 hand tools to 4 500 farming households.
  • Procured 10 000 doses of vaccines against common livestock diseases.
  • Vaccinated 8 783 head of livestock belonging to 1 500 livestock owners.
  • Distributed 650 female goats to 216 households in 32 villages. Each village also received a male goat of a better breed. Each household also received two 50 kg bags of feed.
  • Village Development Committees formed in all 32 villages, each with subcommittees focused on natural resource management. Committee members were trained on environmental protection and natural resource management.
  • Trained 65 women in building improved stoves, minimizing fuel use and protecting the natural vegetation.
Impact:
  • Despite the El Nino event during the project period, farming households were able to harvest about two or three 90 kg bags of cereals each, providing them with food for two months.
  • 75 percent of the targeted households who received vegetable seeds were able to produce enough to meet their needs for between two and four months – 10 percent of whom sold the surplus and generated an average income of SDG 280/month.
  • Areas targeted with livestock vaccination reported lower levels of livestock morbidity and mortality and herders have begun to request further vaccinations.
  • Local communities have better understood the link between protecting natural resources and building more resilient livelihoods, which is contributing to behaviour change.
