SALOHI - Food Security
The Strengthening and Accessing Livelihoods Opportunities for Household Impact (SALOHI) Program is sponsored by USAID. It is implemented by a consortium of highly experienced international NGOs in Madagascar, including the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere, Inc. (CARE), Catholic Relief Services United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (CRS) and Land O'Lakes International Development Division.
The goal of the SALOHI program is to reduce the food insecurity and vulnerability in 21 districts in eastern and southern Madagascar by 2014. It is targeting at 98,500 vulnerable households (or approximately 492,500 people) in 120 rural communes in 21 districts and three urban centers in eastern and southern parts of the country. These zones have been selected based on nutritional data, poverty indicators, and vulnerability to natural disasters, as well as potential synergies with other development actors. These selection criteria are reflected in USAID´s Madagascar Food Security Programming Framework.
The SALOHI program works closely with local communities in empowering people to get out of food insecurity and vulnerability. SALOHI will improve human capabilities in health and nutrition; reinforce livelihood capacities in farm productivity, agribusiness and capital mobilization, reduce vulnerability to livelihood risks and shocks, and reinforce program participants´ capacity to influence decisions affecting their food security.
