decreasing malnutrition and improving agricultural produc-
tion and economic activities in Southern Somalia. The
Emergency Free Food Distribution (EFFD) component of the
program focuses on Gedo Region, which consistency has
reportedly the highest global acute malnutrition rates in
Somalia, a country with notoriously high malnutrition. The
Emergency Food for Work (EFFW) activities focus on Hiran,
Bay, Middle Shabelle and Bakool regions and include the
rehabilitation of canals, roads, river embankments, water
catchments, land clearing, sand dune stabilization and market

2. Somaliland Schools Improvement Project (SSIP)
The SSIP project started in April 2004. It aims to rehabilitate
15-20 schools in communities that have encouraged and sup-
ported girls to complete primary education and join the teach-
ing profession and sponsor 15-20 potential female teacher
trainees that are committed to return to their local schools as
teachers to the Somaliland Teacher Education College (STEC).
USAID through Creative Associates funded the 1-year project.

and attend school with the aim of increasing the number of
female teachers. The project hopes to accomplish this through
mobilization of the communities to support education, partic-
ularly for girls.

3. Puntland Pastoralist Program (PPP)
The overall goal of the Puntland Pastoralists Program (PPP) is
to reduce vulnerability of pastoral communities through
increased resilience of livestock production to climatic vari-
ability. The final goals are:
1 increased access to essential animal health services for the
target pastoral communities, and
2 improved understanding and consensus among the stake-
holders on natural resource management needs.

The program is composed of three components:
1)Community-based animal health services component: The
program will utilize business-oriented approach to
strengthen community animal health services run by 60
Community Animal Health Workers (CAHWs), and facili-
tate technical support provided for CAHWs by 4 private
2)Institutaionl framework component: The program will
strengthen an institutional framework for community ani-
mal health service delivery among the Ministry of Livestock,
Agriculture and Environment (MoLAE), the private sector
and pastoral communities.
3)Natural resource management component: The program
will conduct an externally commissioned multi-sectoral
study on pastoral livelihoods and natural resource man-
agement and integrate community-led action research
activities into the ongoing interventions under the commu-
nity animal health component.

CARE partners with VSF-Suisse and 4 local NGOs. The par-
ticipants include 60 CAHWs, 4 Community Development
Committees, 4 veterinarians, the Puntland Livestock
Professional Association, and the MoLAE. The program will
benefit approximately 20,000 pastoralists in 4 districts in
Bari, Nugal and Mudug regions of Puntland.

4 Support to Vulnerable Groups
The aim of the project is to improve the livelihood of vulnera-
ble households through access to food as well as enhanced
water availability, market access, and environmental conser-

vation by way of rehabilitation of collective infrastructure. The
target population are 5,440 destitute, poor, and middle
income households living on the Sool Plateau, Sanaag region.
These households are pastoralists who keep shoats and
camels and have close links with permanent settlements in the
area. CARE applies the cash-for-work approach to provide
short-term employment opportunities and the much-needed
cash for purchase of food and meet other livelihood require-
ments. The cash injections will have a direct impact on
improved food access and livelihood security of the target
group in particular and the local economy in general. The
proposed main activities will involve rehabilitation of rural
infrastructure, environmental conservation, and community
management capacity building. Specific activities will include
rehabilitation of roads, berkads, balleys; soil conservation
along the gullies; and training of community implementation
and facility maintenance committees on management.
Besides the improvement of the household livelihood security
of the targeted communities through the cash for work activi-
ties, the project will aim to stem the environmental degrada-
tion caused by human and animal pressure on the natural
habitat that has exacerbated over the past period of poor

5 Civil Society Expansion Program
The final goal of the five-year program that was initiated in
October 2000 is to realize strong civil society organizations
that contribute to good governance and peace building with
cooperative, productive, linkages with civil authorities. The
program strengthens institutional capacity and sustainable
linkages among civil society organizations (CSOs), communi-
ties and civil authorities by partnering with 37 CSOs. The pro-
gram provides financial, technical and institutional support for
the partner CSOs in the form of sub-grants, and uses the
process of delivering community-based development projects
to foster linkages among the stakeholders and promote good
governance and democratic principles.

Support to Primary Education (STEC)
STEC is currently the only available Teacher Education College
for primary school teachers in Somaliland. A number of agen-
cies are working with the institution to support training of
teachers to work in the formal or non-formal basic education
sectors. Coordination is necessary to prevent duplication of
efforts and also maximize impact; CARE International in
Somaliland is taking a lead in this coordination.

STEC began operating in 2002, with secondary school stu-
dent from form 2. The students complete the secondary edu-
cation curriculum in the college and then persue the teacher
training courses in the final year. The STEC graduated 159
teachers in 2003. Currently, it has 165 students in two class
levels who will graduate in 2004 and 2006. There are 60 stu-
dents (13 male and 47 female) in form 3. While those in form
4 are 105 students (80 male and 25 female). The girls’ schol-
arship program has increased the enrolment of female student

The project aims to building the institutional capacity of STEC
and MOE to sustain the process and increase the number of
qualified female teachers in Somaliland.

7. NGO Security Preparedness and Support Project
The NGO Security Preparedness and Support (NGO-SPAS)
Project aims to reduce the risks posed to programme person-
nel and assets of NGOs operating in Somalia through the pro-
vision of specialised, coordinated and focused security man-
agement support. The project recognises the insecure operat-
ing environment all NGOs face in Somalia and the collective
value of enhancing security preparedness and support. The
project seeks to provide the NGO community with its own
security focal point and ensure the development of tailored
security support services in relation to information gathering,
analysis and reporting; coordination with relevant actors such
as UNDSS; the upgrading of security preparedness through

through the provision of training and technical advice; and the
undertaking of security assessment activities.

8 Puntland Health Partnership Project – Phase II
The goal of the Puntland Health partnership Programme
(PHPP) is to increase access quality maternal health care for
22,000 women in 4 rurall communities and two urban centres
Mudug and Nugal regions of Puntland by 17th May 2005.

Health care in Somalia is among the worst in the world, due
to the breakdown in central government, civil strife and a host
of other reasons. With the highest maternal morbidity and
mortality rates in sub-saharan African, improving Somali
women;s access to maternal/child health (MCH) services is of
particular concern. CARE has been working to improve
access to MCH services by working with 5 local NGOs and 4
public health facilities to train community health workers
(CHWs), traditional birth attendants (TBAs) and strengthen
management and cost recovery systems at the rural health
posts and urban health facilities and integrate community
based health services into the public health systems.

tarian needs of 4,000 households (24,000 people) affected
by the Tsunami waves on 26th December 04. The Programme
involves immediate food and non-food relief during the initial
six month phase with adherence to Sphere minimum stan-
dards. Most of the activities will be carried out by Somali
