Food Security & Livelihoods

IPCA’s Food Security and Livelihood (FSL) Unit provides support to the most vulnerable through community-based, cost-effective programs with a focus on income generation, crop production, livestock, and fisheries in Central, Eastern, and Western Equatoria as well as Western Bahr El Ghazal. The FSL Unit works to enhance food security and nutrition by empowering vulnerable women, widows, single mothers, foster mothers, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, infants, and young children at risk of malnourishment to meet their basic needs, raise nutrition standards, and create more resilient communities.

IPCA’s FSL projects help to restore livelihoods and food security, promote resilience, and ensure financial stability and independence within communities, with particular attention to the needs of women, children, and vulnerable groups. Recent FSL projects have included training workshops for 120 women and men in tailoring, hair dressing, and soap making and marketing (Juba and Mundri County), agricultural training for 180 farmers in farming, pest and disease management, and post-harvest handling (Mundri and West County), provision of grinding mills, training for young mothers on saving and loan schemes (VSLA) for financial independence, and distribution of relief food to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) settlements in Juba County.
