care somalia program summary
  • CARE has been active in Somalia since 1981 when it began providing support to refugees in the country at the invitation of the former government of the Somalia Democratic Republic. CARE’s programming activities since then have included large-scale emergency relief and refugee assistance activities, water facility construction, primary health care, small scale enterprise development, local institutional building, primary school education, and agriculture. With the outbreak of civil war in 1991, CARE moved its main office to Nairobi, but continued to maintain sub-offices in Puntland, Somaliland and Southern Somalia. CARE Somalia works in partnership with Somali and international NGOs, civil authorities and local communities.
rural food security program southern somalia
Rural Food Security Program (southern Somalia)
  • CARE began implementing the Rural Food Security Program in 1998, which is working to improve agricultural production and economic activities. Using food for work, the program has been rehabilitating key agricultural infrastructure such as tertiary canals, secondary roads and local markets. Initially focusing on improving agricultural infrastructure in Lower Shabelle, a traditionally food surplus region, in 2000 the focus shifted. In response to the growing food crisis in parts of southern Somalia, CARE began to undertake Emergency Food Distributions and Emergency Food for Work in the Gedo, Hiran, Bay and Bakool regions. Through the RFSP, CARE has made substantial contributions to improving agricultural production and addressing emergency food needs in southern Somalia, directly benefiting more than 200,000 people.
  • Objective: To improve the food and livelihood security of vulnerable populations affected by drought and insecurity in southern Somalia.
  • Participants: 350,000 people
  • Partners: 25 local NGOs
  • Donors: USAID
civil society expansion program somaliland and puntland
Civil Society Expansion Program (Somaliland and Puntland)
  • Working in both the Somaliland and Puntland regions of Northern Somalia, this program builds on the seven-year Somalia Partnership Program. Using an explicit civil society strengthening approach, and introducing RBA to CARE’s partners, the CSEP is working to strengthen the linkages between Somali communities, NGOs and local authorities. Sub-grants are provided to partner organizations for capacity building, agriculture, livestock, maternal health and income generation sectors. Entering its final year, discussions are currently ongoing with USAID to re-design the program and extend it for an additional two years.
  • Objective: Strong civil society organizations that contribute to good governance and peace building with cooperative, productive linkages with civil authorities
  • Participants: approx. 50,000 people
  • Partners:33 civil society organizations and authorities in Somaliland and Puntland
  • Donors USAID, CARE Africa Fund
support to primary school education somaliland
Support to Primary School Education (Somaliland)
  • Working with 18 primary schools in Hargeisa, Somaliland, this EC funded project improved physical infrastructure, teachers’ skills and community education committees’ ability to manage schools. The sheer number of students requiring access to primary school education in Hargeisa has meant that only a fraction of the communities needs could be met with this two-year project, and a second phase was developed. Funding from the EC for the second phase has not yet been approved, but it is anticipated that this happen before the end of the calendar year.
  • Objective: Provide structurally sound, sanitary physical facilities and classroom environments that promote learning to the approximately 14,000 students in the 19 targeted schools in Hargeisa.
  • Participants23,000 students, 18 schools, 327 teachers
  • Partners: Ministry of Education officials, Head-teachers and Community Education Committees
  • Donors:
  • European Commission, UNHCR, Thomas WarthJuly

Support to Vulnerable Groups Livelihoods through a Cash-for-Work Programme in Sool and Sanaag Region

CARE will apply the cash – for – work approach to provide short – term employment opportunities and much needed cash for purchase of food and meet other livelihood requirements. The cash will injections will have direct impact on improved food access and livelihood security of the target group in particular and the local economy in general. The proposed main activities will involve rehabilitation or rural infrastructure, environmental conservation, and community management capacity building. Specific activities will include rehabilitation of roads, berkads, balley, soil conservation along the gullies, and training of community implementation and facility maintenance committees on management. The project will also aim to stem the environmental degradation caused by human and animal pressure on the natural habitat that has exacerbated over the past period of poor rainfall.

Objective: To improve the livelihood of vulnerable households €through access to food as well as enhanced water availability, market access, and environmental conservation

Participants: A population of 5,440 households

Partners: Civil authorities and other International NGOs

Reintegration of Returnees (Somaliland)
  • The first year of the program included four separate projects targeting returnees to Somaliland: micro-credit, vocational training, informal education for women and rural food security. During its second year, the informal education for women project was integrated into another project targeting non-formal education for women. CARE works in partnership with NGO partners to assist in the re-integration of returnees into Somaliland society.
  • Objective:To facilitate the re-integration of Somali returnees into Somaliland society and provide returnees with the skills and resources needed to productively contribute to the rehabilitation process in Somaliland.

shabelle agricultural rehabilitation project southern somalia
Shabelle Agricultural Rehabilitation Project (Southern Somalia)

This project is part of a larger initiative in the Lower Shabelle region being implemented by a consortium of international NGOs (CARE, Concern, ADRA and Chefa) and is funded primarily with the EC. SHARP builds upon the achievements of the RFSP, and the earlier Institutional Strengthening Project (ISP), which was funded by CARE’s Africa Fund, but uses cash-for-work, rather than food-for-work. Due to the positive impact of and response to the sluice gate and culvert component of the ISP, this was integrated into the SHARP, as well as training for communities and Somali NGOs on community management of irrigation systems. It is expected that by the end of the project, target communities and partner NGOs will be better able to sustainably manage tertiary irrigation canals.

Objective:Improved food security at the local and household level and reduced vulnerability to natural disasters for communities in 2 regions of southern Somalia.

Participants: 100,000 people

Partners: Local NGOs, Cefa, Concern and ADRA

Donors: European Commission CARE Deutschland
