ADRA and the USAID Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance are helping vulnerable households become more food secure in the long-term through the EAPROM project. It is implemented in Bekily, one of the drought-hit districts in Southern Madagascar.
It targets 10,000 vulnerable households, including female headed households, and those with high numbers of children, elderly dependents and persons with disabilities whose latest crops failed and thus do not have any seed stocks available for cultivation
The project distributes drought resistant crops such as sorghum seeds and cassava vines. It also includes WASH activities and agricultural training.
