Summary

ATEG's was asked to help with food insecurity within the Falhadie IDP Camp, in Bamako, Mali. It is home to 1,000 IDPs, over half of them children, who fled terrorism in Central Mali. They settled in a garbage dump and have been living under deplorable conditions. We felt the situation called for a broader intervention, including relocation and training. We will lease arable land on which to train them in the production of horticulture crops, poultry and livestock for consumption and sale.

Challenge

The Falhadie IDP Camp was built on a garbage dump. The IDPs have been living there for over 2 years under inhumane living conditions. The shelters are made of rubbish and are bunched tightly together. Rubbish is always being burned to create more space. The fires give off toxic fumes which cause respiratory issues among the community. The camp is next to the livestock market and the smell is unbearable. The population is suffering from food insecurity, with many children malnourished.

Solution

In the Falhadie Camp, the IDPs receive no government assistance. They are completely dependent on the generosity of others. ATEG will relocate them to a clean, safe living environment. Through focus groups we have established community buy-in for this project. Once relocated, the IDPs will be trained by the ATEG team of world experts on agriculture and raising livestock. This will improve their nutritional status, provide a source of income, and restore their dignity.

Long-Term Impact

We expect that this project will forever alter the gender dynamics within the community. The women will have major roles in leadership and decision making. We will support the formation of a Women's Cooperative where they will have a seat at the table in managing the distribution of food, favoring at risk populations including: children under five, pregnant women and the elderly. Our intervention will help establish food security for this entire community.
