Livelihoods and Nutrition Improvement Project Funded by UN World Food Program

I am proud to update you that PACHEDO in partnership with UN World Food Program Participated in improving community resilience and household capacity in food production small scale entrepreneurship and market access for sustainable livelihoods as well as empowering vulnerable people to advocate for their rights and promote peaceful co-existence in Lamwo. PACHEDO is involved in building the capacity and coordinating nutrition-sensitive activities (livelihood, environment and energy efficient practices and protection) of the district and community structures, as well as implementing the agricultural and economic opportunity interventions both in the settlement and host communities. While in the second year of the project, implementation of nutrition sensitive (food security and livelihood) interventions made the following remarkable achievements in the 4 zones of Palabek Ogili Settlement in Lamwo district.

The nutrition sensitive interventions targeted refugee and host communities of Palabek Ogili subcounty. The average number of host population households directly served was 120 while refugees accounted for 317 of the beneficiary households. The government of Uganda recommends a 30% and 70 % service for host population and refugees respectively.

PACHEDO mapped, verified and registered caregivers of discharged TSFP/OTC project beneficiaries into 10 Cascade groups consisting of 302 members for livelihood support in the 6 zones/parishes (3, 4, 5A, 5B, 6, and 7,) noted with the high GAM rate according to the mass nutrition screening report 2020. The identification process was participatory and was guided by VHTs, CNVs and Local Leaders at each target community and the involvement of zonal and block leaders was significant in the exercise. A priority was given to most vulnerable persons i.e. women/women headed households, youth, households that were TSFP/OTC beneficiaries and discharged from the program , those with reproductive age group (18-45 years) but were constrained by lack of basic production inputs (for the host communities).Persons having access to own land, communal land or land for hire for agricultural production and willing to lend or hire part of it to refugees for production.
