Impact Report | Rapid Response



The RESET Foundation implemented an impact assessment study of the results related to the project implemented in two districts of Cabo Delgado - Palma and Mocímboa da Praia - aligned with the socioeconomic development and corporate social responsibility objectives of TEPMA1.


The project aimed to provide a rapid response to a critical humanitarian situation, where immediate support was provided to 2,652 families in just 3 weeks. The solution, adapted to an unprecedented context, was implemented through a dedicated team, overcoming logistical, procurement and security challenges that significantly impacted mobility.


Demonstrating adaptability and resilience, the project expanded its reach to 32 communities and 2,652 farmers, exceeding the initial plan. The presence in the communities involved direct involvement, selection of farmers, distribution of inputs and tools, agricultural technical assistance and monitoring of production.



 


The main impacts of the first year of intervention


In the first year of the project, we witnessed significant and transformative impacts amid unprecedented challenges. Through a quick and effective response, we were able to provide immediate support to 2,652 families facing a critical humanitarian situation. This project involved 32 communities, ensuring the distribution of essential inputs and the execution of activities essential for the sustenance and recovery of affected areas.

Initiated in a challenging post-conflict context where hunger was prevalent due to limited humanitarian access, the project achieved significant improvements. The main positive factors and respective impacts of the project were:

  • Rapid Response - Immediate support to 2,652 families in critical humanitarian situations, in just 3 weeks.

  • Design of Solutions Adapted to Immediate Needs - Creation of solutions adjusted to an unprecedented context and implementation in record time.

  • Mobilization and Implementation - Assembling a team in 3 weeks to operate in the region, despite the insecurity that kept most companies and organizations away.

  • Adaptability and Resilience:

    • Mobilization of 32 communities and 2,652 farmers, exceeding the initial plan of nine communities with 2,000 farmers.

    • Purchasing, transporting and distributing inputs to the 2,652 families, with almost daily adjustments due to security restrictions.

  • Community Presence - Direct interaction with communities, selection of farmers, distribution of inputs and tools to 2,652 people, and formalization of contracts, among other reported activities.



 


Direct testimonies from supported farmers

Ana, 42 years old, married and mother of five children, from a community in the district of Mocímboa da Praia, depends exclusively on her only source of income - Agriculture. Due to regional conflicts, she and her family lost everything, including their seed reserves, becoming extremely dependent on humanitarian donations to feed their family.


However, after receiving training in sustainable practices for the production of different crops, she was able to significantly increase her family's food security. In the 2022/2023 agricultural season, based on the support of the project, she managed to produce more than half a ton of agricultural products, which were stored and used exclusively to feed her family.


Participants reported that with the intervention they managed to mitigate crop losses due to the conflict as well as through training and technical assistance to obtain an increase in crop yields. These techniques included improving seed preservation, optimizing irrigation and facilitating weed control. Preventive measures such as the rapid use of homemade pesticides for immediate pest control and fences to protect crops were useful and efficient in combating losses and damages caused by conflicts.
