Community development program Arba Minch

In general, the intervention area is food insecure and has a high population pressure, small land holding – shortage of farm land, eroded soil, lack of income generating activities and low level of education. The children are often deprived of basic needs, have no or little access to basic social services such as school, health facilities, vocational skills training centers, which makes them vulnerable to child trafficking, and other forms of exploitation and exclusion.

The long-term goal of the program is to improve the social and economic resilience of the community in order to enable the people of Arba Minch to take care of themselves and their children.
