Program areas at Cnfa

Amalima (development food assistance program): zimbabwethe amalima project draws its name from amalima, the ndebele word for the social contract by which families come together to help each other engage in productive activities such as land cultivation, livestock tending, asset building and their own development initiatives. Amalima will build on communal initiatives and solidarity to strengthen food and nutrition security and enhance households and communities' resilience to shocks. In order to do so, the project will strengthen household and communal resilience by mobilizing people around ideas they own and share, and by melding traditional concepts with innovation. The project will work with over 66,000 households, leveraging community-led approaches to increase productivity, improve drought mitigation and adaptation, and apply market-led approaches to push and pull vulnerable households into profitable value chains by streamlining cereal marketing from surplus to deficit areas. In addition, the project will enhance nutrition care practices, providing a combination of capacity building, training and mentoring, food rations, vouchers, tools, matching grants, and community-based messaging and mobilization to achieve its expected results.
