One Village Transformed, DRC

This project will be implemented in the Azoo area within Aru Diocese. This area is rural and most of the residents eke out a living from subsistence farming and small animal husbandry. Farming practices are traditional, which leads to poor farm productivity and food insecurity. The high infant and maternal mortality rates have broken down many families. A majority of the adults are illiterate while the school dropout rate is very high. Through the Diocese of Aru, World Concern will seek holistic transformation of the people living in Azoo through a number of spiritual and economic development interventions. The activities to be implemented include initiation of saving groups, training in business development skills, trauma healing, literacy and numeracy activities, church and community leaders training and a campaign against gender based violence (GBV). It is expected that the project will benefit over 2000 people directly and 6000 indirectly.
