Description and results


This project aims to improve the family income of over 450,000 people (60% women, 50% youth) through improved market networks and vocational training. It also aims to strengthen the capacity of local partners and over 220 communities (35,000 people; 80% women, 25% youth) to implement and monitor strategies to (1) reduce malnutrition; (2) improve child, maternal, and community health; and (3) provide support for vulnerable segments of the population, such as people living with HIV/AIDS (9,600 people; 65 % women, 25% youth). In addition, the project increases women’s capacity to participate in household and community decision-making, as well as reinforcing the infrastructure (water, electricity, and equipment) and upgrading staff training at seven hospitals and community health clinics.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (i) improved medical services, community strategies, and decision-making by women within their household, to address community, child, and maternal health; (ii) improved livelihoods of farmers, small business owners, and community members, especially marginalized people (women, widows, orphans, and the disabled); and (iii) increased participation by women in informed decision-making at the household and community levels.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of the project (april 2016) include: (1) as a result of generator installation, several services have been restored with over 50% of patients using the restored services being women. These interventions have led to declines in severe and moderate malnutrition among children 0-5 years old from 1033% for all partners, compared to national baseline of 43-52%; (2) 70 to 89% of farmers are implementing agricultural best practices in their gardens. These strategies promote soil health and protection against soil loss, thereby discouraging deforestation and reducing silt accumulation in watercourses; and (3) participation of women in household decision-making increased from 41-70% to 70-75% of decisions by women alone or in collaboration with their spouse. These results have contributed to improved medical services, community strategies and women’s decision making and the improved livelihoods of farmers, small business owners and community members.
