Summary

On March 15, 2019, Cyclone Idai made landfall near Beira, Sofala Province, Mozambique. With sustained winds of up to 185 km/hour and torrential rains, Idai has been classified as one of the Southern Hemisphere's most devastating storms on record. This project will support AHAH's recovery program in Mozambique, where our teams are working to support communities in the aftermath of this devastating storm and rebuild their heavily damaged schools.

Challenge

Because of Cyclone Idai, more than 400,000 individuals were displaced, over 200,000 homes were severely damaged or washed away, and a reported 4,222 classrooms were destroyed. This storm impacted approximately 336,125 students alone, many of whom are being taught in Temporary Learning Centers (TLCs) that reach extreme temperatures and are exposed to the elements.

Solution

This program will contribute to recovery in the wake of Cyclone Idai by building two disaster-resilient schools that will directly impact over 700 students. In addition to this, training on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) will be provided to each school community so they have the tools and knowledge to be prepared in the face of an unknown future disaster.

Long-Term Impact

The work of our dedicated staff and passionate volunteers will provide hundreds of local children with safe and disaster-resilient schools that will be built to last for generations of students to come. In addition, we are increasing the capacity of local masons in resilient construction techniques and are working with local organizations to develop sustainable WaSH, agriculture and nutrition programs that will endure long after AHAH no longer has a presence in Mozambique.
