Projecto Oreriha – Avaliação final

O projeto Oreriha foi desenhado em 2015 seguindo uma solicitação de propostas da FSDMoç. A CARE em parceria com Ophavela respondeu esta solicitação e submeteu uma proposta dum projeto de dois anos em maio de 2015. Nesta proposta escolheu-se de propor quatro mudanças chaves na abordagem de implementação de grupos de poupança:
1. Adaptação da metodologia ACPE para permitir mais flexibilidade nas poupanças. Isto responde às necessidades dos grupos heterogéneos em Nampula com rendimentos sazonais.
2. Reduzir o número de sessões de formação e visitas de animadores para as mensagens mais essenciais e momentos críticos na formação do grupo, que serão apoiados por mensagens de vídeo e em um novo manual simplificado.
3. Melhorar o processo de formação do grupo, transmitindo mensagens claras, consistentes e atraentes aos potenciais membros do SG, usando um vídeo promocional, reduzindo o tempo e os custos da mobilização da comunidade;
4. Substituir registos no papel por e-Registo para melhorar a precisão do registro, a qualidade do grupo e a independência dos grupos, particularmente no acto de distribuição.

Sustainable and Effective Economic Development (SEED) Project Summative Evaluation Report

The Sustainable and Effective Economic Development (SEED) project was a seven-year initiative that started in January, 2006, and ended in April, 2013. The project was funded by CIDA and managed by CARE Canada and CARE Mozambique in partnership with Irish Aid, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). CIDA’s contribution was $7.5 million. Irish Aid contributed Euros 1,218,906 towards funding for the cashew component of the project, and IFAD contributed Euros 353,630 towards funding for the goat component with research undertaken by ILRI staff.
The SEED project was implemented in a difficult and challenging environment. The primary stakeholders were the women and men living in the rural communities of the project area and their needs were many. Most were living at a subsistence level in some of the poorest districts and communities of Mozambique. There were limited economic opportunities as these communities were dispersed, populations sparse and transport access was very difficult to and between many communities. There was also a lack of service providers supplying agricultural inputs or technical support at the community and government levels. These communities were confronted with incidences of HIV/AIDS and the numbers of female headed households were high. [76 pages] Read More...
