Since August 2017, ACTED has supported 1650 families from Ouaka with a project centring on the reconstruction of shelters financed by OFDA.
One of ACTED’s teams has helped Honorine construct her family’s new shelter. With ACTED’s assistance including the distribution of building materials and the training of local community members in construction techniques, each target family can take on the responsibility of building their own shelter. Such an approach ensures buy-in from the community and a sense of ownership.
Today, Honorine and her children have a new roof over their head and enjoy safer housing conditions than before.
This intervention is also reaching out to the regions of Ngakobo, Kouango and Bakala, going beyond shelter assistance to provide basic trainings on farming techniques, and tool and seed distributions.
