mission Chad

The adventure begins in Chad

The first step of your journey: support the living conditions of border populations by improving basic local services, including access to water and sanitation.

AAH has been operating in Chad for 41 years. You will join a team of more than 280 people who work on the ground every day. In 2021, 5.5 million people required humanitarian assistance and food insecurity affected 4.6 million people. Severe acute malnutrition stands at 2.1% across the country. AAH contributes on several levels:

  • Nutrition/Health
  • Food Security and Livelihood
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
  • Mental Health and Care Practice

West Africa is experiencing its worst food crisis in a decade, with 27 million people suffering from hunger. That number could rise to 38 million between now and June if urgent action is not taken. Coupled with this, an unprecedented drought poses many problems. This includes, among other things, access to water around Lake Chad.

  • Date of the mission : From 22 to 28 May 2022
  • Objectives : 300 000 km
  • Ongoing process : 102%

mission Zimbabwe

Heading to Zimbabwe

Congratulations on your commitment to Chad! You have an appointment in Zimbabwe.

Your missions will be aimed at strengthening the management and organisational capacities of farmers in Chiredzi and Mwenezi. All this is done in order to allow a transition to sustainable agriculture, and thus secure agricultural resources in the long term.

Since 2022, AAH has been involved in food security and water access and hygiene. This is done through a partnership-based approach with two national partners – Africa Ahead and Nutrition Action Zimbabwe. The mission implements solutions to the food insecurity of rural and urban populations. Direct consequences of the effects of prolonged drought, COVID-19 restrictions and the economic crisis.

You have 5 days to complete your missions in this country!

mission South Sudan

Let's go to the youngest country in the world: South Sudan

This week you are in South Sudan. Since 1984, AAH has been working in this country of 10 million inhabitants, which is landlocked and bordering Ethiopia.

In that country, 7.7 million people were acutely food insecure and 1.4 million children under the age of five were acutely malnourished. In 2021, the country faced the highest rates of food insecurity and undernutrition in its history. Remote areas were cut off from humanitarian assistance due to severe flooding that affected 835,000 people. In addition, factors such as localised conflicts, increased climate shocks, recurrent flooding, arid periods and drought, poor water services, lack of protection systems and the impact of COVID-19 have contributed to record rates of hunger and undernutrition.

More than ever, this country needs concrete and sustainable action.
