Challenge

When the Tsunami came, it swept away livelihoods as well as people. Productive soil has been rendered useless by the salt water of the sea. The poor, landless and marginal farmers in the rural villages of Aceh and north Sumatra are set to suffer most. Unless their needs are known they may be forgotten. This project targets 14,000 families who were already below the poverty line and are now even worse off.

Solution

Communities will create their own “Community Action Folders“ using the MicroAid framework. Training in the MicroAid system will help them find resources to fund the recovery projects and poor family learning activities they choose.

Long-Term Impact

7 village centres will be set up and run by trained local community leaders. Each will have its own MicroAid online center, on which they will publish local needs and action plans for funding by local government and international donors.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
