The project aims to meet the immediate food needs of vulnerable people in South Sudan, while promoting longer-term food security through community projects that increase food production. Project activities include: (1) providing cash or food assistance to households in exchange for work on community projects such as vegetable gardens, irrigation canals and ponds; (2) supplying agricultural tools such as improved seeds, watering cans and wheelbarrows; (3) providing training to participants on climate-smart agriculture, crop diversification, and reduction of post-harvest losses; and (4) developing women’s capacity in financial literacy and numeracy. This project works to target vulnerable households, including many that are women-headed, have family members with disabilities or who are chronically ill, or include acutely malnourished children.
