Through INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT projects, ADPP aims to help build a country of dynamic, inclusive communities where everyone contributes to and benefits from development.

SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT takes place in two municipalities in Huíla and Namibe, where communities face multi-faceted development issues. Cyclical drought has led to loss of harvests and livestock. Insufficient food and water have exacerbated health problems in areas where access to and uptake of health services is low.





Needs identified were improved access to water and energy, the establishment of systems to maintain water and energy facilities, a network of trained Community Agents to inform, educate and mobilize families on prevention and treatment of common diseases, and the creation of Farmer Field Schools to help smallholders improve production and adapt to prevailing conditions in a sustainable way.

105 Community Health Agents worked with more than 11,162 families on improving health and sanitation through disease prevention messages, encouragement to build latrines and hand washing systems, cleaning campaigns, vaccination, malaria testing and promoting the use of health centres. 35 schools participated in disease prevention and the maintenance of the water systems. Teachers gave health lessons and pupils organised actions and events in their communities. All schools had Water and Sanitation Groups.

29 Farmer Field Schools organised training sessions for 1,225 members to help improve production and increase environmental sustainability. Horticulture, organic fertiliser, natural pest control, nurseries for propagation, small animal breeding and
marketing of produce were promoted.

The project achieved a milestone in 2019 when, despite the continuing severe drought, the target communities enjoyed the combined services of water and electricity. The eight community solar energy systems, completed in 2018, proved to be very reliable sources of energy and brought changes in the lives of the inhabitants. Finding equally reliable sources of water was not always easy but 2019 saw the completion of this component with 8 boreholes producing an extra 80,000 litres of water each day for nearby communities.

Schools, clinics, drinking troughs, communal washing areas and fountains were connected to the systems. 2020 saw the structures in place activated to mobilize every family in the target area about COVID-19 and help them take preventative measures. In 2021 the focus is on adapting to life in the “new normal” with COVID-19, and continuing to building resilience in the face of climate change.

The Institute for Artisanal Fishing is implementing a large scale project to increase productivity and commercialization of fish in selected communities in Luanda, Bengo, Cuanza-Norte and Malanje.




To complement professional development and promote sustainability, ADPP is implementing a community development project with activities to tackle food security, nutrition, climatic change, water & sanitation and more. Community Action Groups in each village work to create development plans, including micro-projects to be carried out in pursuit of their objectives. Literacy training is offered in all communities, while in some village savings groups have been created. In Malanje, groups of young people have been trained and organized to dig fish tanks which have been populated with fish. Literacy lessons and support for cooperatives are equally important components.

FRESAN – Strengthening of Resilience and Food and Nutrition Security. ADPP is implmeneting a project to improve access to water in 39 communities in Ombadja and Curoca municipalities, 






and establish sustainably community management of the water points and installations. 18 existing sources of water are being rehabilitated and 24 new sources constructed, while construction or rehabilitation of 39 small distribution systems will ensure the water reaches the communities. 293 women and 293 men will attend training on community management of the water sources and distribution systems.

As part of the project, CODESPA are establishing Farmers’ Field Schools and promoting more efficient use of water for agriculture, cattle and other domestic animals.
The project forms part of the Strengthening of Resilience and Food and Nutrition Security programme (known as FRESAN from the Portuguese) which supports vulnerable smallholder families in Huíla and Namibe too.

Collaboration between CODESPA and ADPP is continuing in Cuvelai and Ombandja, Cunene Province, in order to promote food and nutrition security in the face of continued climatic uncertainty. CODESPA is concentrating on availability and access to food as well as on improvements to resilience,



while the role of ADPP is to ensure female smallholders have the knowledge and support to provide the family with nutritious, healthy food and safe drinking water.
ADPP provides nutrition education, an existing pillar at Farmers’ Club and Farmer Field School projects and for which a nutrition manual was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.

Cooking demonstrations will inspire women to take full advantage of available produce and show how to prepare the ingredients with minimal loss of nutrients. The project will monitor the nutritional status of infants using the MUAC system of measuring the upper arm, and refer mothers to local clinics where necessary.

Treatment of water and of milk will feature, as both can give rise to serious illness if consumed untreated. 1,000 moringa and fruit trees will be planted to raise the level of consumption of fruit among beneficiaries and to promote the properties of moringa, including as animal forage.

The project forms part of the Strengthening of Resilience and Food and Nutrition Security programme (known as FRESAN from the Portuguese) which supports vulnerable smallholder families in Huíla and Namibe too.
