Challenge

Local fishermen who have no boats can only be trapped in refugee camps and cannot work for their living and household and their livelihood is lost. While maintaining the basic life is a problem, children's education is neglected. The locals are supported with supplies and assistance, but that's not a long-term solution. Lacking the information and knowledge of disaster prevention is also a secret worry. When the future hazard comes, how to respond properly and reduce the damage?

Solution

Increase the livelihood income by improving the fishing equipment, establishing a sales pipeline for processed catch, and establishing support groups for the community reconstruction. Improve children's schooling quality, providing materials and meals for them. Enhancing community disaster prevention capability and build up resilience communities. Provide local people with preventive measures to reduce the impact of disasters. They are equipped for disaster preparedness on a regular basis.

Long-Term Impact

771 families in 6 villages, about 3,084 persons will be helped. Men are back to the ocean and earn bread for the family. Women has been empowered and learnt catch-processing skills. Children are back to schools and get educated with abundant resource. Experts and volunteer teams are sent to scout, explore, and hear from the locals; designing suitable disaster prevention programs for villages, hosting workshops and holding drills in schools and villages; aiming to build up resilience communities
