Our belief that economic, social and environmental security is the bedrock of a healthy community drives the nature and intent of our programming.

    The STREAM Consortium, established in early 2013, aims to provide a sustainable opportunity for resilience building for communities chronically affected by food insecurity and humanitarian crises in Lower Juba. Targeted communities will benefit through the delivery of predictable and regular cash transfers to vulnerable households, alongside investment in diverse livelihood bases and the provision of support and community led preparedness, early warning and timely response systems.

    Both ACTED and Adeso have extensive experience of and presence in humanitarian programming in Somalia, in particular in South-Central Somalia and Lower Juba.

    ACTED has been working in South-Central Somalia since 2009, and has developed strong relationships with communities and local authorities through the provision of food security, WASH and livelihood programming. ACTED Somalia's areas of intervention are located in South Central Somalia, across the Juba’s (Middle and Lower), Bay and Gedo regions supported by an operational area office in Mogadishu. ACTED has operated emergency response programs, most notably offering vital humanitarian assistance during the 2011 drought, and is now moving towards resilience building.

    In 2012 the security context and constraints on programming in Dinsoor and Sakow forced the organization to make a decision to close these project sites and relocate activities to Baidoa, El Waq and Kismayo following needs assessments done in both areas. As a result, in 2013 ACTED adapted programming to support urban communities including IDPs, host and minority groups to enhance food security, strengthen livelihoods and improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene.
