Integrated Community Development

Our Human Rights projects give skills and knowledge to offenders and strengthen the reintegration response in Correctional Facilities and Juvenile Centres to prevent ex-offenders from reoffending after release, so as to give them a better restart of their lives.

 

                        

                             Partnering with PANOS, Ubumi Correctional Facility Initiative, and the Government of Zambia we are implementing a project that helps inmates improve their own lives outside correctional facilities and win their communities’ acceptance. This is done by strengthening rehabilitation services for inmates and juvenile offenders through imparting life skills, and improving reintegration services to allow for their smooth transition after release.

                                    Human Rights in Correctional and Juvenile Facilities

The “Incarcerated Populations Rights to a Productive Future is their Human Right” is implemented in 3 juvenile facilities; Nakambala Approved School, Katombora Reformatory School in Kazungula, and Insakwe Probation Hostel, and in 8 adult Correctional Facilities in 3 provinces. The project works closely with partners to conduct services in Systems Strengthening, Juvenile Conveyance, Diversion Programme and reintegration.

Our Farmers’ Clubs model in which farmers are mobilised to engage in farming as a business, contributes to improved agricultural productivity and climate resilience in complimenting government efforts to combat poverty and reduce food insecurity and hunger.

                                

                         This is done through the implementation of Climate Resilience Initiatives that enables vulnerable rural households and communities to increase their resilience by addressing the causes of food and income insecurity in the context of increasing climate risks.

The approach brings smallholder farmers together in target areas to interact with government extension providers and the private sector to improve agricultural production, marketing and micro financing through access to training sessions, model farming, field visits, low cost technical solutions, technical assistance, and exchange of collectively gained experiences and promotion of community services.

Smallholder Farmers' Support Project Southern Province:

The Smallholder Farmers’ Support Program in Southern Province builds resilience for farmers to cope with, and adapt to increased incidence of climate shocks that has intensified their inability to improve their well-being. The project implementation is led by a team of 21 Project Leaders, each working closely with a group of 500 farmers, who are organised in 10 Farmers’ Clubs of 40-60 farmers each.
