The Integrated Rural Development Project is starting its second phase. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed on 11 January 2017 in Thateng. The objective of the project is to sustainably improve food security in the 12 target villages by 2019 by building the capacity of local actors for an autonomous and improved response to food insecurity. To this end, the project will focus on training and knowledge transfer, particularly in the fields of agriculture, water and sanitation, nutrition and hygiene.
SFE thanks the authorities at district, provincial and central level for their agreement and thanks donors who have already confirmed their support for the project (Tear Australia, Australian Aid, Entrust Foundation). Other donors are considering support for the project.
