Project outline

[wbcr_html_snippet id=”920″ title=”display ads”]

In the 20 years since the opening of our office in Meheba Refugee Settlement in today’s Kalumbila District, AAR Japan supported refugees, mainly from Angola, in various areas such as health, education and agriculture until the majority of them repatriated in 2004.

In 2017 we relaunched Meheba operation to provide assistance to former Angolan refugees and Zambian households in the designated Local Integration area. After 2 years of supporting the former refugees and Zambian residents to build integrated communities through 1) forming self-help groups among residents regardless of their status and 2) empowering the groups to work together in water and sanitation management, we plan to further extend our support in the area of livelihood/ agriculture) from 2019.

We aim to strengthen the ability of the residents to implement livelihood activities by providing/distributing necessary equipment and assisting them to conduct collaborative livelihood activities such as joint transport of produce to markets or information sharing session among group members.
