Addressing immediate food security needs among the most vulnerable IDPs in Deynille district, Banadir Region – Somalia


Titre : Addressing immediate food security needs among the most vulnerable IDPs in Deynille district, Banadir Region – Somalia

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : SOM-16/3485/R/FSC/INGO/3901

Durée : 15/12/2016 — 15/10/2017

The proposed project seeks to enhance household purchasing power through entrepreneurship skills training and provision of business grants to 178 poor and vulnerable IDPs in Deynille district. The project will complement short-term life-saving food and cash assistance by SCI and other actors in the target location by catalyzing durable solutions through medium term livelihood support. The aim is to build the capacity of the targeted households to generate incomes that will allow them to sustainably afford food and non-food needs. Within the framework of durable solutions, the project seeks to contribute to the transition of beneficiaries from aid-dependent IDPs to urban residents who are able to engage in urban livelihoods for self-reliance. The project will have two main activities as outlined below. Entrepreneurship training : This activity will target 178 vulnerable individuals, with a priority given to women. A beneficiary selection criteria will be agreed between SCI, local communities and local authorities. The training will be facilitated by local consultants supported by SCI training and employment advisor. The training will be divided into 2 phases. The first phase will cover 60 hours focusing on topics such as introduction to entrepreneurship, record keeping, marketing, costing & pricing, completion, demand & supply, profit and loss calculation, business planning, business income versus personal expenditure etc. Beneficiaries will then receive their business grants and after 2 months into their businesses, they will receive a second round of training covering 20 hours. This will mainly focus on actual business experience in order to allow for peer learning and support. Distribution of business grants : The trained beneficiaries will receive small business grants, each getting USD 600 to start small scale income generating activities. As SCI is implementing similar interventions in the target location and has conducted market assessments, these will be used to support the target beneficiaries in selecting profitable business activities in their locations. Distribution of business grants will be accompanied by business mentoring and case management support by SCI staff.

Assistance will target poor and very poor Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) households as defined by wealth ranking and household interest or expressed capacity to pursue income generating activities. This will further be narrowed down to prioritize extremely vulnerable households, in particular poor female-headed households ; destitute IDPs and poor pregnant and lactating women who are at increased risk of malnutrition. Beneficiary identification will be conducted by community-elected project committees, based on the selection criteria. The targeted IDP settlements will be facilitated to form project committees made up of both male and female community representatives. SC will sign an agreement with these committees stipulating the roles and obligations of both parties. Selected beneficiaries will be verified publicly at sub-camp level through which the lists provided by the project committees will be read to both project beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. The public verification process will scrutinize the selected beneficiaries against the agreed targeting criteria and those found not eligible will be replaced during the verification. Any changes to the lists will be documented and signed by both SC staff and the project committees. The public verification will be complemented by further verification by SC Monitoring Evaluation Accountability and Learning (MEAL) staff through random house visits. Besides verification against the agreed criteria, this exercise verifies the fairness of the selection process in terms of gender, minority groups, and clan composition. This will reduce inclusion and exclusion errors in the targeting process. The final beneficiaries will be registered through digital data gathering platform, using a standard registration questionnaire.
