Relief & Rehabilitation – AFDC - 41 Appeal Target: US$ 1,517,566

Geneva, 2 February 2004

Dear Colleagues,

The year 2003 was a very hopeful year for the people of the DRC as they saw the creation of a transitional government with all parties to the conflict being included. Acceptance of entry visas issued in Kinshasa by the authorities in the eastern DRC was a sign of good things to come although the air of mistrust is still strong, especially in the two Kivus. The UN also strengthened their presence in the eastern part of the country where the conflict has been most intense over the years. This allowed access to some of the remote areas where previously people could not be reached with humanitarian assistance due to the insecurity that had prevailed. The new development also opens a window of opportunity for recovery and rehabilitation activities in the secure areas of the country.

However, despite the positive political developments that have taken place in the last year, most areas in the eastern DRC remain highly insecure with a high rate of human rights abuses by various fighting factions and militias. There is total break down of law and order and the power of the gun still rules. Looting, murder and rape of women are daily occurrences especially in the eastern part of the country. Health and education facilities hardly exist for the majority of the population leading to very high mortality rates from treatable diseases and a high level of illiteracy among the young population.

The programs in this appeal will try to address some of the pressing issues facing the people of the eastern DRC through providing assistance to sexually abused women, shelter, water and sanitation, relief and rehabilitation assistance to the internally displaced people and returnees, educational facilities for children, and also capacity building for church humanitarian workers.

The ACT implementing members working in the Eastern DRC are requesting US$ 1,517,566 for humanitarian activities in the provinces of North and , and . The ACT Co-ordinating Office in Geneva is also requesting USD10,000 to cover costs for communications and field monitoring trips to the DRC during the year. ACT is a worldwide network of churches and related agencies meeting human need through coordinated emergency response. The ACT Coordinating Office is based with the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) in Switzerland. DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 2 AFDC-41 Appeal

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 3 AFDC-41 Appeal

GENERAL DESCRIPTION of the SITUATION The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a country, which is trying to get out of a seven-year devastating war. This war, more intensive in the East of the DRC, has been one of the deadliest, especially in the rural areas, which moreover are the production points of subsistence crops for the majority of the population. These rural areas have mainly been targeted by the rebellion on the pretext that they shelter the rebel forces. The conflicts between rival forces were abusively exploited by the rebel movements or their allies to set some areas ablaze especially the Ituri (Eastern Province), the Masisi (North-Kivu), Uvira (South- Kivu), ect. The eastern part of the DRC includes the following provinces; The Eastern province, Maniema, North Kivu and South-Kivu. It represents 32.40% of the national territory and is inhabited by 37.30 % of the national population, with 87% of the internally displaced populations, estimated at 3,044,000 people.

In the east, it is the peasant population that has mainly been displaced during the wars. Out of a population of 18,652,185 people, 2, 647,000 are displaced (14.19 %). These figures are of July 2003 and were issued by the UNOCHA (United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs) in August 2003 in its Humanitarian Information Leaflet for the East of the DRC.

Indicators of vulnerability in the East of the DRC (source OCHA August 2003)

N° Indicator Eastern Maniema South- North Kivu province Kivu 1 Internally displaced (nbr) 791 000 234 000 413 700 1 209 000 2 Infantile mortality 14.3% 12.2% 14.7% 14% 3 Infant-juvenile mortality 24.1% 20.5% 24.9% 23.7% 4 Chronic global malnutrition 12.9% 11.2% 17.5% 16.8% 5 Severe chronic malnutrition 5.3% 5.1% 9.8% 10.5% 6 Food insecurity 32.5% 47.4% 65.9% 15.1% 7 Non access to drinking water 83.6% 98.2% 82.7% 86.6% 8 Non access to hygienic sanitary 49.9% 87.6% 42.6% 53.3% facilities 9 IHV 12% 8- 12% 10 Homeless families (nbr) ± 2 500 ± 1 500 6 000 11 Women sexually abused (nbr) 1589 ± 5 000 4 000

Figures in this table are minimum since all the displaced have not possibly been reached, especially those hiding in the forest and the ones living in areas under control of armed groups, which do not fully co-operate with the humanitarian community.

North Kivu has many more displaced because it hosts most of the displaced from the Ituri / .

The rate of infection by HIV has rapidly grown (1-5 % end 2001, and 20-22 % presently) because of frequent rape against women, children and even against men by armed groups and rebels. Raped women are regularly hospitalised at the DOCS hospital in Goma (1,400 women already) for specialised intervention. Lots of women, however, do not declare that they have been raped for fear of stigmatisation.

The system of communication has improved since May 2003 because of private communication networks and especially mobile phone networks. It is now relatively easy to communicate by phone from the towns all over the country with email also being much more accessible.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 4 AFDC-41 Appeal

With the gradual reunification of the country the displaced populations are little by little returning to the villages where peace is restored. Others are opting to remain or even settle where they have been hosted during the conflict because insecurity still prevails in their home villages.

II. REQUESTING & IMPLEMENTING PARTNER INFORMATION

The Christian Aid Field Office in Bukavu, Eastern DRC, was established in February 1996 to support long-term development projects initiated by its church and NGO partners. Presently, CA works in partnership with 27 local organisations in the following sectors: food security, peace promotion and human rights, emergency relief, micro-credit, capacity building and HIV/AIDS.

Humanitarian relief activities commenced in 1997, with support to large seed and tool projects. In 1997/98 distribution of agricultural inputs, food and non-food items to internally displaced people, food and non- food items to displaced in host families and, more recently, to the Goma volcano disaster victims hosted in families in Bukavu town and surrounding areas. Another programme for returnees based on micro-credit is on-going in Goma town. Under AFDC 21 CAID supported displaced Burhinyi people in 2002/03, funded a relief project in /Maniema Province and agro-pastoral rehabilitation in South-Kivu. CA is one of the two ACT members in South Kivu or Maniema. In November/December 2002, CA assisted with food and non-food items to the Kindu population whose town had been isolated by Mai-Mai taking position in the surroundings and blocking all access to the fields

III. DESCRIPTION of the EMERGENCY SITUATION

Current situation South Kivu: This province has for many decades been reputed for its weak agricultural production and problems with livestock rearing. The province’s food security problems have roots in the pre-conflict era and are due to the infertility of the soil and poor farming techniques, exacerbated by the demographic explosion and a land management regime, which is unfavourable towards small-scale farmers.

These pre-existing problems have been exacerbated by two successive wars over the last five years, as well as regular violent leadership struggles between different groups. In June 2003, the government of Kinshasa, rebels and armed groups signed an agreement which brought them together. A transitional government has been established and a national army is being put together also comprising belligerents from different militia groups. The DRC is facing a catastrophic post war humanitarian situation, needing basic emergency relief and rehabilitation of its infrastructure (schools, hospitals, health centres, roads, etc). Houses have been razed to the ground during the conflict and a large number of women and young girls have been raped and mistreated by all groups of combatants in the Congo.

Given the end of this war, the humanitarian community can now move in the former isolated areas where most of the population are returnees. Most of the refugees who fled into the neighbouring countries such as , Zambia, Angola, , and the Central Africa Republic are also returning. Those uprooted people have lost most of their property and belongings.

Poverty has become widespread as a result of the war. Adding to rising rates of morbidity and poverty among rural populations is the high prevalence of HIV exacerbated by the presence of seven armies and various armed groups involved in the past conflicts and the high numbers of rape incidents.

Security: In the present post war context as mentioned above, the security situation in the East DRC is gradually improving. However, some areas where are operating are still experiencing sporadic attacks. A joint effort from MONUC and the government is ongoing to demobilise and repatriate this group.

Update on the impact of CA and partners’ programmes Despite the fact that the war has caused displacement on a massive scale, in recent years some improvement in the situation has been observed in a large number of villages assisted by CA partners. CAID is currently supporting a two-year Peace and Reconciliation programme in which four partners are involved. The programme is reaching mostly those areas and people who were directly or indirectly affected by the conflict.

This is why a large-scale distribution of tools is not necessary in this proposal - the investigations carried out by partners have revealed that this is no longer a priority in the South Kivu area as the most urgent needs in terms of tools have been met. Only the seeds will be distributed this year. However, it is planned to supply small tools on a small scale to accompany market gardening and agro-forestry seeds to help families in the cultivation of seedlings.

Distribution of non-food items will be needed mainly to support children, victims of rape and families whose homes have been looted.

Partners’ capacities have been substantially enhanced through the various training activities built into these projects over the years. In particular they have been able to improve their technical capacities in

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 7 AFDC-41 Appeal

seed technology, breading, micro-finance and financial management and accounting. Partner staff are currently putting into practice the training received under the 2002 and 2003 campaigns.

Maniema Maniema Province has about 1,500,000 inhabitants surviving essentially from subsistence agriculture, hunting and small-scale fishing activities. Most of the province is covered by dense forest while the southern part, which borders on Katanga, is savanna. The province is well irrigated, and the town of Kindu is situated on the left and right banks of the Congo River. Maniema has a rich and fertile soil and high rainfall, conducive to cultivating rice, maize, groundnuts, manioc, plantain bananas and palm oil. The province was formerly accessible by road and rail, as well as by boat from Kisangani and Kinshasa, and by air. Today, however, the only way of reaching Maniema is by air, as the entire road and railway system has fallen into disrepair and the Congo River linking the interior of the country to the capital, Kinshasa, has not been navigable for the past four years because of the war. However, now that the war has ended some international NGOs such as FHI and CARE (assisted by USAID funds) have started a general rehabilitation of the railway.

The recent war has clearly had a devastating impact on Maniema and its inhabitants, and in the course of fighting between RCD and Mai-Mai troops, thousands of civilians fled to Kindu, and then left the villages. Many villages were looted and burned by the warring factions, resulting in many families losing all their belongings, homes, animals and harvests. People who were reported to be displaced in Kindu town are returning home while the Mai-Mai fighters are joining the national army. Five centres have been erected in Kindu town to host those people and demobilised child soldiers. In November 2003, CAID and its partners conducted a joint needs assessment. Both sides noted a lack of food and non-food items, agricultural inputs and an increasing problem of malnutrition due to lack of food security within the province.

In a recent assessment undertaken in December 2003, Christian Aid staff and partners noted the lack of both food and non- food items in various places in the Maniema Province populated by returnees. Kindu town in currently experiencing a severe lack of means to welcome some thousands of demobilised Mai-Mai. Some of them are willing to join the new unified army while others should be returning to the civil life.

The most urgent needs in Maniema were, as in previous years, felt to be non-food items, seeds and tools and seed storage and transport, as well as animal rearing inputs. It has become increasingly apparent that much of the province’s malnutrition problems are attributable to the limited capacity of the population to have a diet sufficiently rich in animal proteins. This is because belligerents on both sides of the conflict (RCD and Mai-Mai) have not hesitated to loot animal stock. During a meeting held between CA staff and partner organisations in Maniema (November & December 2002), it was suggested that the introduction of fish breeding would go a long way towards improving this situation and was decided that this year’s campaign should also include a family fish-breeding element. That project has just started and a training phase has already began.

Security: Repeated Mai-Mai attacks became usual in Maniema Province during 2002. Kindu town was surrounded and this created a general humanitarian crisis all over the province. Maniema remained insecure throughout 2002 and continued to be so in various locations like in , despite the marked MONUC presence in Kindu and the RCD/APR troops across the province. The official withdrawal of Rwandan troops in August 2002 in the eastern side of the DRC was expected to facilitate communication between the town of Kindu and its surroundings, which had been inaccessible for a long time, as a result of being surrounded by armed groups. The situation however, remained confused and the local authorities were unable to even control the situation in Kindu town. However, this has now improved since the presence of MONUC in Kindu and the reunification of the country.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 8 AFDC-41 Appeal

Update on the impact of Christian Aid’s previous campaigns in Maniema Very promising results were observed after CA’s and partners’ support in May 1998, 2000 and 2001 until the deterioration in the security situation between Sept 2001 and May 2003. Partners proposed a further project in 1999 for collection, transport and storage of seeds reimbursed through the rotating credit system. This system has been so successful in increasing the availability of good quality seeds that as of the season 2001-02, needs have been sufficiently covered through this community system and partners have not asked for any more seeds. The seed varieties (groundnut JL24) introduced to the province by CA can still be found in Maniema today and are very well appreciated by the local population for their flavour and their high yields in the production of groundnut oil. Furthermore, market gardens are now widespread in the province as a result of training in market gardening, received through the 1998, 2000 and 2001 interventions.

In spite of these successes, the demand in terms of quality tools and improved seeds is increasing due to widespread poverty caused mainly by the country. The current politico-military situation has clearly undermined a lot of the good work and progress made by Maniema’s rural population, who had begun to believe that, through their own efforts and with vital support from CA, the rehabilitation of the agricultural sector could be achieved.

IV. TARGETED BENEFICIARIES

Local partners will carry out the selection of beneficiaries according to a set of criteria, agreed by CA and partners during the various preparatory meetings. The targeting exercise, as with all aspects of the project, will be subject to random field monitoring by Christian Aid Field Office staff. The precise list of beneficiaries will be confirmed once funds are available and the project is ready to begin.

Criteria used in selection ƒ Families of at least 5 people (the average family size is 7) ƒ Having an interest and some experience in animal rearing techniques; knowledge of composting. ƒ Returnee or repatriated families ƒ Host families ƒ Families that have no current source of income. ƒ Families who have not benefited from the previous agro-pastoral rehabilitation programme (AFDC 22) ƒ Table 1. Activities / partners / territories / beneficiaries

Activity Partners Territories Covered Benef families Distribution of seeds ASOP, CDI, FECOPS, PADECO, Uvira, Fizi, Walungu, Kabare, Kalehe, 8,256 & small tools GASAP, PIAD, PAE, V.TEQOA, Idjwi, Bunyakiri, Mwenga; Minembze BECA, PLD, EAC, CBCA Agro-sylvo-pastoral ASOP, CDI, FECOPS, PADECO, Uvira, Walungu, Kabare, Kalehe, 2,744 rehabilitation GASAP, PIAD, PAE, V.TEQOA, Idjwi, Mwenga BECA, PLD, EAC, CBCA Total 11,000

Targeting the most vulnerable families As the numbers meeting the criteria will inevitably exceed the level of funds made available, it will be necessary to target those families deemed to be most vulnerable. For this reason there will be an initial list-checking exercise to avoid duplication and check for false applications. At this stage there is also scope for checking any new vulnerable groups that may have emerged since the initial needs assessment

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 9 AFDC-41 Appeal

was made. Village committees will be responsible for identifying beneficiaries using the criteria agreed by the project steering committee, in order to ensure that the most vulnerable are reached. These include widows, child-headed households, single-parent families, the sick and elderly, and those who have lost most assets during the conflict.

According to the UNOCHA recent Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) people in Eastern DRC have been worst affected by the conflict. More than 3.5 million of people have been killed in the Congo since 1998. Also, in August 2003, OCHA News announced for South Kivu province: 413,700 displaced people (who are now returning), 65.5% food insecurity, 17.5% of malnutrition, more than 5,000 cases of rape …

This proposal aims to assist 11,000 families in South Kivu province - 8,256 families receiving seeds and small tools, 2,744 families agro-pastoral rehabilitation and 10,000 families in Maniema province - 5,000 receiving food and non-food items and 5,000 families receiving seeds and tools. This seeks to reinforce the efforts already put in progress by some CA partners mainly in South Kivu, and whose reimbursement results of livestock credits will help to increase the number to 2,744 families as foreseen in this programme.

In all cases, partners will consult local traditional chiefs and administrative authorities to explain and confirm plans before proceeding to identification and registration of beneficiaries. They will then hold information meetings with the local communities to explain clearly what is envisaged and to consult local opinion. Once this consultation process is completed the registration activities can begin. Lists will be compiled and will be strictly limited to the numbers agreed between Christian Aid and its partners. This should help avoid the pitfall of unlimited registration, which would lead to an insignificant ration per beneficiary and increased distribution costs.

For seed distributions, beneficiary targeting will follow the same principles but with new criteria identified by the Steering Committee in the light of the circumstances prevailing at the time. At all stages, CA will collaborate with ECC in order to avoid duplication. At the point of distribution, beneficiaries will sign (or thumbprint) against their name to acknowledge receipt of their goods.

Maniema Christian Aid will follow the same general procedures as in the South Kivu programme (see above); beneficiaries will be identified in co-ordination with the local partners.

The number of needy families to be assisted by the programme is 5,000. As in previous years, the project will continue to provide good quality seeds and tools as many of these were destroyed/looted during fighting in 2002.

Territories The appeal covers the town of Kindu and the 5 territories in which CA Maniema partners have traditionally been engaged, namely Kibombo, Kasongo, Kabambare, Pangi et Kailo.

V. GOAL & OBJECTIVES

Goals ƒ To help meet the immediate humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable returnees and host families. ƒ To alleviate the suffering of war victims (returnees and their host families) and support local initiatives aimed at relaunching agricultural and agro-pastoral production and improving the food security situation of South Kivu and Maniema.

Objectives - South Kivu ƒ Re-launch of agricultural production ƒ To supply key farming inputs to increase agricultural production and livestock levels among war victims ƒ Distributing seeds and small tools where needed to returning displaced and host families, in time for the planting season in February and September 2004. ƒ To provide quality livestock ƒ To develop the capacity of local NGO and churches partners to respond to relief situations ƒ Training in livestock rearing and agricultural techniques. ƒ To monitor and evaluate the programme

Objectives for Maniema ƒ Distributing non-food items to the most vulnerable displaced or returnees and host families where required ƒ Monitoring the evolving needs of war victims ƒ To provide key inputs for increased agricultural production and fish-breeding ƒ Distributing seeds and tools as rotating credits, to vulnerable displaced, host families and returnees in order to encourage the stabilisation of the population, and increase agricultural production ƒ Protecting harvests through a seeds storage and transport programme ƒ Introducing a family fish farming initiative. ƒ To develop the capacity of local NGO and churches partners to respond to emergency situations

VI. PROPOSED ASSISTANCE & IMPLEMENTATION

Activities South Kivu ƒ Field visits for needs assessment ƒ Organisation of meetings with involved partners ƒ Definition of areas and types of assistance ƒ Selecting criteria ƒ Identification/registration of beneficiaries ƒ Training/exchanges visits for both partners and beneficiaries on agro pastoral techniques ƒ Distribution of seeds, tools and animals

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 11 AFDC-41 Appeal

ƒ Permanent monitoring by partners and CAID Bukavu ƒ Reporting ƒ Audit and evaluation

Maniema ƒ Agreement of local implementation plans with local chiefs and administrative authorities; ƒ Sensitisation of local population in target areas; ƒ Registration of beneficiaries; ƒ Procurement of goods and transport of goods; ƒ Distribution of seeds and tools to 5,000 families (approximately 35,000 people) ƒ Distribution of food (salt) and non-food items (jerry cans, plastic plates, plastic cups, saucepans, buckets, clothes and blankets to 5,000 families (approximately 35,000 people). ƒ Distribution of fry and tools for ponds, to 1,000 families for whom this would be a principal activity. ƒ Monitoring of all activities by partner organisations.

SEEDS & TOOLS Tools will be provided in all project areas, while seeds will be distributed where required; short-cycle vegetable seeds will be supplied wherever possible and appropriate e.g. in Kindu town in collaboration of the local FAO office. Maniema partners are now well experienced in transporting their seeds to secure points ready for the next harvest. An amount for these costs is included in the overall budget.

TRAINING Training needs remain high and partners have made many requests in this respect. Planned activities have been interrupted and not taken place as a result of the Nyiragongo eruption in Jan 2001 and the insecurity of the peripheries of Kindu, although funds had been made available for this.

Personnel: each local partner organisation will be funded for staff members to manage the project in their areas. In addition they will manage a budget for distribution personnel, and for labour for loading/unloading, monitoring and evaluation. Christian Aid Field Office staff will have a proportion of their time charged to the project (see Budget for details).

Transport: Partner organisations will hire bicycles, pick-ups, trucks according to the distance and road quality. They will also hire boats on the Congo River where appropriate. By hiring for all extra transport needs the project is protected considerably against loss of capital investment.

Implementation methodology (how the assistance will be provided) Given the fact that this programme fits into one of CAID's priorities in the region and for DRC: food security as a long term programme, the methodology for meeting its objectives will be the same as the one used in CA’s previous agricultural programmes based on rotary credit. Partners will receive some amount for permanent supervision, sensitisation on improved rearing and agricultural techniques. Also, partners will be get support from the local committees in terms of advice and local/internal monitoring to beneficiaries.

Inputs for project implementation (material and human resources needed) South Kivu Personnel: each local partner organization will be funded for 2 staff members to manage the project in their areas. In addition, they will manage a budget for distribution personnel, and labour for loading/unloading, monitoring and evaluation. Christian Aid Field Office staff will have a proportion of their time charged to the project (see budget for details).

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 12 AFDC-41 Appeal

Transport: Partner organisations will hire pick-ups and trucks, according to the distance and the budget, road quality and quantity of goods and animals per distribution site, for the transport of goods from Bukavu to the distribution sites.

Partners will be funded also for transport and care for animals delivered to villages. Those partners who already have been supported by CAID in terms of trucks or other vehicles (pick up) will receive some funds to cover expenses for fuel/oil and maintenance.

Small animal rearing: The rationale here is to enhance agricultural production through the increased availability of manure for improving the soil, as well as providing an additional source of family income through livestock sales and secondary products. During various training sessions calculations were made to estimate the potential income to be made by rural families through this initiative. It was calculated, for example, that one tonne of fertiliser from the pigs can be sold at $24, while each sow can produce 5-15 offspring with each litter and can have 20 of these over a ten-year period. Families will also receive training in animal rearing and reimbursement and rotating credit strategy for multiplying the inputs as well as support for veterinary products and follow-up by vets. Under AFDC 22, CAID supported a similar programme, which has been successfully conducted by the group of partners and the beneficiaries’ families. The proposed animals distribution will reinforce the previous one in targeting new families and new areas.

Goat rearing: A goat-rearing component has been built into the project this year in response to requests from beneficiaries, in particular those from the Ruzizi Plain and the Hauts Plateaux (Uvira territory), for goats to be provided instead of pigs. It was decided that goats should partially replace the pig distributions. In this way it is hoped that the initiative will reflect as much as possible the cultural and traditional preferences of beneficiaries.

Training: This proposal will allow CA to pursue training for partners and beneficiaries in agricultural and animal-rearing techniques. This will be followed up by exchange visits, as was the case for the agro pastoral rehabilitation work already under way in Sud-Kivu.

Maniema Personnel: Each local partner organisation will be funded for staff members to manage the project in their areas. In addition they will manage a budget for distribution to personnel, and for labour for loading/unloading, monitoring and evaluation. Christian Aid Field Office staff will have a proportion of their time charged to the project.

Transport: Partner organisations will hire bicycles, pick-ups, trucks according to the distance and road quality. They will also hire boats on the Congo River where appropriate. By hiring for all extra transport needs the project is protected considerably against loss of capital investment.

Additional information on project activities Seeds and tools Tools will be provided in all project areas, while seeds will be distributed where required; short-cycle vegetable seeds will be supplied wherever possible and appropriate e.g. in Kindu town. Maniema partners are now well experienced in transporting their seeds to secure points ready for the next harvest. An amount for these costs is included in the overall budget. Training Training needs remain high and partners have made many requests in this respect. Planned activities have been interrupted and not taken place as a result of the Nyiragongo eruption in Jan 2001 and the insecurity of the peripheries of Kindu, although funds had been made available for this.

Planning assumptions, and constraints ƒ Lack of funding ƒ Climate changes ƒ Outbreak of another war and insecurity within the project areas ƒ Plants and animals diseases ƒ Bad quality of seeds

VII. IMPLEMENTATION TIMETABLE

February 2004 – January 2005.

Transition or Exit strategy Thanks to the successful revolving credit approach taught to the first group of beneficiaries and thanks to the sensitisation by partners upon the sustainability of the programme, the second group will be assisted by items from the repayments. Beneficiaries’ families will generate income by selling of animal and agricultural products.

VIII. ADMINISTRATION, FINANCE, MONITORING & REPORTING

South Kivu Christian Aid’s Eastern Congo Field Office, in Bukavu, will be responsible to the ACT network for ensuring that high standards of administration, financial management, monitoring and reporting are achieved. In addition to previous projects, the Field Office has recently collaborated with the majority of the same group of partners in agro-pastoral rehabilitation (AFDC 22).

It must be noted that the territories covered by the project activities are vast and are composed of many widely dispersed, and often isolated villages. Communication networks are virtually non-existent, and for this reason partners tend to meet up prior to distributions in order to co-ordinate their interventions in such a way as to avoid duplication of efforts. To help co-ordination in this context a successful system of management has evolved which avoids the pitfalls of damaging dominance by the Field Office (as the donor) on the one hand, and of slack management and financial control on the other. It has also resulted in significant capacity building for the Field Office and local partners alike.

Procurement for relief distribution projects is the responsibility of the Christian Aid Field Office in collaboration with some elected partner representatives. All other aspects of implementation will be the responsibility of the local partners. They will be obliged to follow decisions made by CA or according to the meeting recommendations in all matters concerning the project. Each partner will produce a financial and narrative report to CA who will approve and consolidate it into one final report for transmission to the ACT network. Christian Aid staff will carry out monitoring visits to randomly chosen areas of the project.

Maniema Christian Aid will follow general procedures (as above). As before, Christian Aid staff based in Kindu and implementing local partners will co-ordinate the programme. The budget includes the provision of Christian Aid staff, air travel by field office staff for monitoring purposes, local transportation, office running cost, and support to partners. Christian Aid’s office in Bukavu will be responsible for the overall administrative and financial management of the programme, as before.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 14 AFDC-41 Appeal

Summary of responsibilities ƒ Responsible for project: Christian Aid Eastern Congo Field Officer ƒ Procurement carried out by: CA Eastern Congo Field Office in collaboration with partners’ representatives. ƒ All other aspects of implementation carried out by each local partner listed above, each in its own area of operation (there is no overlap). ƒ Accounting - each local partner will be responsible for accounting for the funds it manages. ƒ Final report to be prepared by Christian Aid Eastern Congo Field Office, and submitted to Christian Aid head office in London before transmission to the ACT network.

Monitoring, Reporting and evaluations ƒ Partners and CAID are responsible for regular monitoring of main beneficiary areas, checking on seeds and tools, food and non food stocks, movements ƒ (Returning home) and other relevant factors; ƒ Financial and narrative reporting by all partners; ƒ Consolidation of reports into single financial and narrative report to ACT by Christian Aid; ƒ The Christian Aid Field Office will organise his own project evaluation before hiring an external consultant to do so.

Reporting Schedule First interim report - 30April 2004 Second interim report - 31 July 2004 Third interim report - 31 October 2004 Final report to be received by ACT CO within three months of closing date of 31 January 2005.

Note: if you have back-donor funding please refer to the Co-operation Agreement for the reporting schedule.

IX. CO-ORDINATION

South Kivu The Christian Aid Field Office is responsible for co-ordination of CA and partner activities South Kivu Co-ordination. The Field Office is also involved in the weekly food security meetings organised by the FAO, while all NGOs and UN agencies meet regularly each Wednesday to co-ordinate security and programme activities. CA leads the commission on displaced persons, which meets weekly in Bukavu. The office has made a point of maintaining its political neutrality and its commitment to working with local structures in South Kivu.

Many co-ordination meetings have been held with ECC prior to finalising the appeal. In general the proposed sectors for intervention by the two organisations are different, but complimentary. In order to build on this throughout the project, CA will meet up and co-ordinate at a later stage to decide how to share out the work for the distribution of seeds and tools as well as exchange ideas on strategy.

Maniema Christian Aid staff in Kindu will ensure co-ordination. During 1998, Christian Aid co-ordinated the activities of local partner organisations who are now accustomed to working in a collaborative and co- ordinated way. Christian Aid anticipates no major problems in obtaining authorisation and other facilitation for the delivery of humanitarian aid and will follow the same approach as in Bukavu. International NGOs will be actively encouraged to participate in co-ordination with Christian Aid and local partners. In 2000/01CA played a key role in the co-ordinating meetings taking place between UN agencies and international NGOs in Kindu town.

I. REQUESTING ACT MEMBER

ƒ Eglise du Christ au Congo (ECC) South Kivu

II. IMPLEMENTING ACT MEMBER & PARTNER INFORMATION

ECC South Kivu The ECC South Kivu is a provincial federation of local churches in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It comprises twenty communities of the 62 communities that make up the National ECC. The Emergency and Rehabilitation Service was created in 1993 with the influx of Burundians refugees and provided assistance for the massive influx of Rwandan refugees in 1994.

Most recent projects implemented by ECC South Kivu and assisted by ACT funding include AFDC 11 which provided assistance to 1, 800 displaced families and other war victims in 2002 and AFDC 22 which comprised farming and cattle rearing rehabilitation for 700 displaced families in South Kivu province.

Partner Information Five of ECC South Kivu partners are involved in this appeal: − ECC-26 Independent Methodist Church in Congo (ECC- 26CLMC), established in 1960. Experienced in Relief Project Management and supported by the Independent Methodist Church in USA since 1973. Legally responsible for Nundu health zone. − ECC-28 United Methodist Church of Congo (ECC- 28 CMUC ) established in 1910. Member of ECC South Kivu. Since 1998 carrying out relief and agricultural programmes mainly in Ruzizi plain, Uvira and Fizi. − ECC-55 Churches Baptist Community in Congo East. (ECC-55 CEBCE ).Member of ECC South-Kivu. Has since 1999 been involved in agricultural rehabilitation – distributing seeds and ploughing tools to the war displaced. − Against Crisis Project (PAC) is an NGO composed of peasant women living in Mumosho, a locality 20 km from Bukavu town. Most involved in food security and farming. − ECC-40 Christian Church Community in Africa (CECA) established in 1946. Involved mainly in development activities in Mwenga territory where they run a general hospital with 150 beds. Partner to ICCO Holland CECA has been active since the beginning of 1998 war in agricultural rehabilitation projects.

III. EMERGENCY SITUATION in areas of proposed response

Current situation In the areas of Mwenga and Fizi, the impact of war is clear with widespread destruction and looting of dwellings, fields and livestock were plundered, in short nothing was left and those who are returning have to start from zero.

Nothing has been done yet to set up a reception structure and assist the return of the displaced who are now returning in greater numbers. The displaced are in fact returning to a place that does not exist any longer. In Baraka, an area in Fizi territory those families who have returned are living in appalling conditions. The level of malnutrition is high amongst children and pregnant women. It has been noted that there are many instances when several families have to share one pan for cooking as they even lack the most basic household utensils. Few houses survived the conflict and are still standing and those few are overcrowded with sometimes 15 to 30 persons in a simple and very small house. This increases the

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 19 AFDC-41 Appeal

chances of disease and also encourages promiscuity. There is lack of health and sanitation facilities and no access to education.

The socio-economic structures such as fisheries, paddy and oil factories were totally destroyed and looted by the invading troops and livestock was stolen and slaughtered.

IV. TARGETTED BENEFICIARIES

ECC-South Kivu proposes to assist 3,000 displaced and returnee families by providing them with agricultural inputs. These people have been living in areas that were previously inaccessible to the humanitarian agencies and church workers. Four hundred of the families will receive a total of 200 pigs and 200goats. Kitchen utensils will be handed to 1,500 vulnerable families of Kasika and Makobola - villages known to be among those that have suffered the most.

The South-Kivu ECC Emergency Service will provide short-cycle vegetables seeds enabling the beneficiaries to re-constitute their food stocks. Apart from the hoes, wheelbarrows and other small tools like rakes, watering cans will be distributed to groups of peasant-farmers

Criteria for selection of beneficiaries For agricultural inputs, cattle and kitchen kits: ƒ Returnee families able to exploit and make benefit of the given inputs according to rotary credit approach ƒ Highly impoverished and vulnerable families with no means of income to support themselves (including pregnant or breast-feeding women etc.). ƒ Widows responsible for more than 5 children. ƒ

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 20 AFDC-41 Appeal

V. GOAL & OBJECTIVES

Goal: Provide assistance to the communities badly affected by the war and help them recover and start life afresh towards normalcy and self-sufficiency.

Objectives: ƒ Improving food security of 3,000 returned families by providing them with agricultural inputs such as tools, seeds and livestock . ƒ Contributing to peaceful cohabitation between ethnic groups in Uvira and Fizi territories. ƒ Providing HIV/AIDS awareness training to 60 female leaders, members of PAC association and church representatives in Musomo. ƒ Assist 1,500displaced families returned to Makobola and Kasika villages with family kits ƒ Reinforcing the knowledge of 14 partners of ECC South Kivu in farming. ƒ Introducing new breeding techniques

VI. PROPOSED EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE & IMPLEMENTATION

SEEDS AND TOOLS Seeds and ploughing implements will be distributed to 3,000 displaced returnee families working in swampy areas

LIVESTOCK The restocking of livestock will be done progressively. It has been planned to start with the more rapid reproduction of animals such as pigs and goats. It is hoped that this activity will make an important contribution to the economic rehabilitation of the returned families and improve the people’s diet.

NON FOOD ITEMS (FAMILY KITS) Family kits will be distributed to 1,500 returnee families in two villages where some of the most horrendous incidents (massacre of civilians) of the conflict were perpetrated - Kasika, in Mwenga territory and Makobola in Fizi territory. Because of the slaughter, those villages have remained uninhabited for a long time after the survivors found refuge in other villages. These people lost everything and will need to be assisted with the most basic items such as kitchen sets.

TRAINING IN GENDER BASED VIOLENCE AND HIV/AIDS Training on HIV/Aids will be available to women taking part in the ‘Against Crisis Project’ and other women and church members in Mumosho. The Medical Co-ordination of ECC South Kivu will help them increase their ability to provide information about Aids prevention and to constitute a basic committee for sensitisation and spreading awareness of HIV/AIDS.

PEACE AND RECONCILIATION 30 representatives from ethnic groups, among them 10 women, will be invited to a workshop/seminar held in Baraka. This workshop will deal with conflict transformation techniques by putting an emphasis on traditional approaches to multi-ethnic conflicts. The South-Kivu ECC Peace and Resolution of Conflicts Program will organise this activity. It is hoped that this will contribute to keeping the dialogue open and reducing suspicion between ethnic groups who have been linked with killings in the areas. Fizi and Uvira territories are most interested in this activity because of the high number of atrocities carried out in the area.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 21 AFDC-41 Appeal

TRAINING OF PARTNERS: 14 partners of ECC South Kivu, including those who are not involved in the implementation of this project will receive training in agriculture and animal rearing, repayment and rotating credit as well as how to use veterinary products and their follow up. They will provide their respective beneficiaries with that training during their agricultural campaigns.

Implementation methodology

Preparatory phase − Setting up-to-date data about the beneficiaries, the needs and the location

Project execution phase ƒ Meeting with the partners to launch the project ƒ Setting up local committees of distribution and identification of beneficiaries according to criteria ƒ Leaders’ training on farming and cattle-rearing techniques ƒ Contact with local suppliers and delivery of orders ƒ Conveying inputs to the place of distribution ƒ Distribution of inputs to the beneficiaries ƒ Pre-evaluation meeting and formulation of new needs between members of local distribution committee and the supervisors of distribution sites (partners).

Monitoring and Reporting − The follow up and evaluation by partners and emergency services of EEC South Kivu;

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 22 AFDC-41 Appeal

− Financial and narrative report writing by the partners − Compiling of partners’ reports into a single financial and narrative report to be sent to ACT CO by Emergency Service of ECC South Kivu ; − Transmission of the final financial and narrative report to ACT;

Personnel: Apart from the two emergency service agents, the project will be carried out by five partners each receiving a fund for his staff members in order to manage the project in their respective areas. In addition, they will also manage the loading, unloading, distributing and monitoring funds. Qualified persons in health, agriculture and veterinary areas will be used for the different training i.e. HIV/AIDS prevention, peace and reconciliation and, farming and cattle rearing to be given to ECC partners South Kivu and members of the Emergency Service staff of ECC South Kivu.

Transport The Emergency Service of ECC South Kivu will hire a car for the monitoring and the follow up of activities during the project. Partners’ organisation will hire motorcycles, vans/pick-ups according to the distance and road quality. They will also hire boats on Lake Tanganyika, which links Uvira City to Baraka in Fizi area. Constraints ƒ Insufficiency of needed inputs in the local market ƒ Climatic vagaries which could negatively affect crops ƒ Uncertainties of sufficient funding ƒ Bad physical infrastructure such as roads rendering some areas still inaccessible.

VII. IMPLEMENTATION TIMETABLE

− February 2004: Project start up − February-March 04: Training of partners, distribution of cooking utensils, livestock and planting season − August 04: Needs assessments for planting season A 04 − Sept-October 04: Beginning of planting season A 04 − January 05: Project ends: Final report and evaluation.

Transition Strategies ƒ Sensitise the beneficiaries on self-reliance in making profits from received seeds, cattle and the importance of not consuming all the production after harvesting. ƒ Making profits from the rotary credit approach, seeds and genitors for future beneficiaries and the sustainability of the project.; ƒ Making use of animal waste by using as fertilisers in the farms; ƒ Showing beneficiaries that the benefits of a peaceful cohabitation between communities are lasting peace and development; ƒ Co-operate with Christian Aid, Bukavu in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo and with other organisations and the state authorities of the South Kivu Province in exchanging lessons learned in emergency and relief programs. ƒ VIII. ADMINSTRATION, FINANCE, MONITORING & REPORTING

ƒ The South Kivu ECC Emergency and Reinstatement Service (ERS) will be in charge of the co- ordination of activities, the administrative organisation and the follow – up. ƒ The ERS will report on the on going activities to the project co-ordination unit.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 23 AFDC-41 Appeal

ƒ The project co-ordination unit will follow up and control the technical and administrative work of the Emergency Service, and will analyse the narrative and financial reports. ƒ The Departments of finance and Management will take care of the follow – up in management and budget control. ƒ The partners will be responsible of the supervision of activities on the fields. Assisted by local distribution committees the partners will carry out the distribution of non-food items and agricultural needs to the target beneficiaries.

Finance The Emergency Service in collaboration with the Project Co-ordination Unit and the Finance and Management Department of ECC South Kivu, will manage funds under the supervision of the provincial chairman through the Provincial Committee of Development. ECC will ensure all required reports are prepared according to the ACT reporting format and submitted to ACT as required.. ECC agrees that the failure to follow the required ACT financial regulation and reporting will result in being excluded in the future ACT Appeals. Reporting Schedule First interim report - 30 April 2004 Second interim report - 31 July 2004 Third interim report - 31 October 2004 Final report should be received by the ACT CO within three months of closing date of 31 January 2004.

Note: if you have back-donor funding please refer to the Co-operation Agreement for the reporting schedule.

Monitoring The Emergency service has some routine and experience in the follow-up mechanisms of emergency. It is run by the service co-ordinator trained in management and response to disasters and with on experienced supervisor who works under the authority of the manager. The latter transmits the follow- up report to the ECC chairman with a copy to Co-ordination ACT in East of DRC based in Goma. Supervisor assure the follow-up of achieved activities by the partners

IX. CO-ORDINATION

The co-ordination of this project will be done by a committee composed of those responsible for the Emergency services of the South Kivu ECC, a representative of Christian Aid and two local authority representatives.

ƒ REQUESTING MEMBER & IMPLEMENTING PARTNER INFORMATION The « Bureau Œcuménique d’Appui au Développement »- BOAD is a non-governmental organisation initiated in North Kivu to respond to the need of local organisations and churches seeking dialogue with foreign partners interested in assisting local efforts to improve the living conditions of the disaster- stricken population in North-Kivu.

The BOAD does not implement programmes itself, but concerns itself with improving the quality of services offered to beneficiaries by its partners - local organisations and church structures. Its main goal is to provide technical and institutional capacity building to its partners. Since 1997, the BOAD has facilitated the execution of several humanitarian assistance projects with funds from the ACT-International. − ASSOPELKA: This association of small livestock breeders from Kashando is located at Kirumba in the Lubero territory. In AFDC 22 it implemented a rehabilitation project providing livestock for 1,200 families with malnourished children. In the present appeal, it will intervene in the same sector in favour of 1,813 vulnerable, displaced families with malnourished children in five nutritional centres south of Lubero territory. − ALCM: The “Association de Lutte Contre la Malnutrition” (association fighting against malnutrition) is an association (mostly female members) acting in the Masisi territory. It is one of the partners that is assisted by BOAD’s close monitoring. It assisted with the rehabilitation and settling of 550 displaced families the AFDC 11 appeal. In the present appeal, it will distribute farming inputs to 900 displaced families newly returned in the villages of Nyabyondo and Masisi. − CODECO: The “Comité pour le Développement Communautaire » (Committee for Community Development) is located at Rutshuru. It is one of the 12 BOAD partners that has benefited from the capacity building programme. It specialises in the domain of hydraulics and in AFDC22 Appeal it built a 15 km water distribution system for 5, 700 recently arrived displaced in the parish of Kisharu. In the present appeal, it will provide a small water distribution system in Kisharu for returnees. CODECO will also provide technical support to connect the Butembo health centre to the village water system. − CEPROSSAN: The « Centre de Promotion Socio – Sanitaire » (Centre for Socio-Sanitary promotion) is a local lay organisation located in Butembo. It is active in the domain of community health in rural and urban areas of the Beni and Lubero territories (North- Kivu). In the AFDC 11 appeal it assisted (along with BOAD) in providing a water distribution system for villages (in Beni and Lubero territories) that had hosted the displaced over the war years. BOAD supports CEPROSSAN in its organisational capacity building as well as with its integration in the “Beni- Lubero humanitarian cell” a humanitarian assistance programme for the territories of Beni and Lubero. In this humanitarian cell, CEPROSSAN is associated with two other structures - the Anglican Church and ASSOPELKA. From September to October 2003, this humanitarian cell distributed assistance in the form of non-food items to 2,170 displaced families in the Beni and Lubero territories In the present proposal they will set up small water distribution systems for those villages hosting displaced in the Butembo health zone. CEPROSSAN will also assist in AIDS prevention education.

− ASMADI: The “Association des Mamans pour le Développement Intégré » Association of Women for a Complete Development) is located at Rutshuru. It is a feminine organisation, which benefits from the close monitoring BOAD organises in favour of its local partners. It is mostly operational in the domains of food security, sanitary and adult education. It is executing a project in support of vulnerable market gardeners at Rutshuru with financial support from the ICCO through the BOAD. It has also completed a project in AIDS prevention for pupils from primary and secondary schools in Rutshuru. In the present proposal it will again deal AIDS prevention. ƒ ƒ EMERGENCY SITUATION in the AREAS of RESPONSE In the North- Kivu province the vulnerability of the displaced or the returnees varies from one territory to another. Insecurity, the main reason for the population displacement is much more acute in the surroundings of the Virunga national park and the equatorial forest. These places hide armed groups, which pillage, rape and kill thus forcing the population to flee.

BOAD has targeted this area because of the numerous requests they have received for assistance from representatives of the disaster-stricken populations and also because of the lack of interest shown so far by the humanitarian community to help them.

Beni and Lubero Territories These territories have hosted all the displaced from Ituri (Bunia) and the area between Ituri and the Kivu. At the same time, the confrontation between the two RCD’s (Goma and K ML) have caused a great population movement in the southern part from May to July 2003. The concentration of the population in the barren places of the Eastern Lubero territory has resulted in famine and shortage of potable water. Malnutrition is severe in the Kayna, Lubero and Musienene health zones. Promiscuity in the Ituri camps for the internally displaced and also in the surrounding villages in the south of the Lubero territory is very high and this could result in a drastic increase of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Masisi and Rutshuru Territories These territories are controlled by and used as security zones. In controlling these Congolese territories, Rwanda has created an unprecedented instability. The Rwandan troops movements, as well as the movements of other armed groups (Rwandan origin or Maiy-Mai) along with the population movement have resulted in a high spread of the HIV/AIDS. It has also caused a negative effect on food production as people will not go near their field for fear of being attached, raped or other crimes committed against them. The rape of women and children by armed bandits has become very common and frequent in the rural areas. According to statistics from the Provincial Co-ordination for the Fight against AIDS in North-Kivu, the rate of prevalence has passed from 6.7 % to 8.8 % in Goma town from 2002 to 2003 and for all the North-Kivu province it is 12 %

Implementation Methodology The project has five objectives to realise within a year at the very most.

The first four objectives concern the BOAD field partners who will execute the work and submit their reports to BOAD. The financial means to carry out the work is provided by BOAD who is responsible to the donors. BOAD will ensure the objectives are reached and provide its field partners with appropriate monitoring and support.

BOAD will provide access for its partners to reference tools such as the SPHERE standards.

Apart from the implementation of projects, the partners will also take part in monthly meetings to review implementation and discuss other issues related to the program.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 31 AFDC-41 Appeal

The beneficiaries will set up their own committees which will hear views of the people on project implementation and any other issues affecting them, and inform the BOAD of any pressing matters. The beneficiaries’ committees will have 50 % women representation.

As for the 5th objective, BOAD is the implementer, but the terms of reference have been decided by the beneficiary organisations. BOAD will ensure monitoring and production of reports to whom it may concern (the ACT CO and donors).

Required resources for the execution (material and human)

Resources At the BOAD level At the level of the partners Personnel ƒ 1 English speaker to translate the reports to be 1 person in charge of accounting, 1 for the submitted to the ACT CO and collaborate in secretariat, communication and cash, 1 person for providing English classes to BOAD staff for a supplies and logistic, 3 persons per project who period of 6 months. will also monitor progress of the beneficiaries and ƒ 5 BOAD personnel directly involved in the will collect statistical data for a period of six project: the co-ordinator & the programme months. These will comprise 1 agronomist, 1 vet manager to ensure the monitoring of the field and 1 social worker for the farming and breeding partners work, organise the training & inputs; 1hydraulician and 2 social workers for the produce reports; the administration manager water network & points; 1 nurse and 2 social and the cashier for the keeping of the project workers for the AIDS prevention campagne. The books, the production of financial reports, the water projects will require 1 mason & 2 assistance execution of bank operations and the - masons electronic communication with the donators. Finally the driver for transport for field visits.

Equipment 1 laptop for Power Point projections ƒ 12 bicycles for the supervision of breeding 1 Retro projector as a training aid and farming activities for beneficiary families ƒ 2 retro projectors for the AIDS project; ƒ Hiring a photocopier for 6 months for the AIDS project. Transport The BOAD vehicle depreciation for 6 months of ƒ Hiring 2 dumpers for 4 months for the water monitoring field activities network projects; ƒ Hiring 2 seven-ton lorries for two months for the distribution of farming inputs. ƒ Hiring 3 motorcycles for 6 months for the monitoring of farming and breeding activities.

Planning Assumptions: ƒ If the Mai Mai operating in Manguredjipa are demobilised, security would cover all the Lubero territory and the population settling around the Butembo town would be able to access the fertile surrounding areas. ƒ ƒ The project of establishing water points from the springs and having it purified would bring relief to the people of Butembo and efforts will be made to achieve the Sphere standards. ƒ If the different armed groups leave the forests the population will have access to the more fertile lands and will need more agricultural inputs to cultivate wider fields. The kind of inputs would also vary according to the areas. ƒ ƒ Depending on the response for this appeal, there will be prioritisation of projects to be implemented following this order; assistance in farming and breeding inputs because of the nutritional state of the target groups; the partners’ capacity building in emergencies; the prevention against IHV/AIDS and finally the improvement of spring wells for drinking water in Butembo and Kisharu.

ƒ IMPLEMENTATION SCHEDULE ƒ ƒ The program will be implemented over a one year period up to December, 2004 ƒ N° Activities Period of execution (in 2004) 01 Support in farming & breeding During the agricultural season from February to May to which June and July inputs are added for the monitoring rabbit project. 02 Prevention against HIV/AIDS Launching the programme in March and April Monitoring of the involvement of the target groups during the dry season from June to September. 03 Fixture of drinking water During the dry season, from June to October. distribution points. 04 Capacity building training . From February to July.

Transition from Relief to Development Apart from the farming and breeding inputs which targets groups who are food insecure, the other projects have a long term perspective. This is why the beneficiaries are involved from the planning stage of the projects and through out the implementation phase

VIII. ADMINISTRATION, FINANCE, MONITORING & REPORTING The financial contributions to the projects are transferred to the BOAD bank account where a special project account will be opened. A meeting is convened with all the BOAD partners to be included in the proposed projects and partnership contracts are signed between BOAD and the partners for specific tasks. The partners are given funds progressively, after justifying the previous instalment. At the end of all the activities there will be an audit. Finally, there will be a participative evaluation in which implementers and beneficiaries along with BOAD will comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the project to draw a lesson for future projects

Monitoring & Reporting Monitoring is essentially carried out by the BOAD for partner organisations at the level of organisational structures and on the level of beneficiaries to ensure that commitments are respected, and that all the stakeholders have participated. Monitoring reports will be discussed with the implementing partner(s) and the concerns and comments of the partners taken into account in the final report to be submitted to the donors.

Together with the field missions carried out at least once a month, the partner organisations will meet once a month to exchange experiences.

The project narrative reports will be finalised either by the BOAD Programme Manager or directly by the BOAD Co-ordinator. The financial report will be the responsibility of the BOAD Financial Administrator. These reports are examined and approved in a meeting of the whole BOAD staff (the Co-ordinator, the Programme Manager and the Financial and Administration Manager), and then submitted to the BOAD Managing Board. The President and the Co-ordinator sign the report for approval, then the report is transmitted to whom it may concern. The financial report is always transmitted after the account audit and certification. Reporting Schedule First interim report - 30April 2004 Second interim report - 31 July 2004 Third interim report - 31 October 2004 Final report to be received by ACT CO within three months of closing date of 31 January 2005.

Note: if you have back-donor funding please refer to the Co-operation Agreement for the reporting schedule.

IX. CO-ORDINATION There is co-ordination at each level of execution: ƒ At the level of the beneficiaries and the community: the partner organisation representatives, the beneficiaries’ committee, the local authority and the representatives of other stakeholders in the area meet at the beginning of the project and then periodically to exchange information on the programs. ƒ At the level of the partner organisations: the representatives of these organisations are involved in meetings called by the authority in the area or any other meetings initiated by humanitarian agencies operating in the area in order to share oral reports about their activities and thus harmonise their field intervention. In these meetings, the stakeholders negotiate with the local administration about required facilities for the smooth running of their activities with the beneficiaries. ƒ ƒ At the level of the BOAD: Basically BOAD attends three types of co-ordination meetings; at agency level, ACT members level and ACT forum for the eastern DRC level. ƒ ƒ Once a month, the North-Kivu province authority usually invites the humanitarian agencies acting in North-Kivu in order to exchange their activities reports. BOAD always attends those meetings, which are a setting for collaboration with the public administration.

I. REQUESTING ACT MEMBER

ƒ Eglise Du Christ Au Congo (ECC/North-Kivu)

II. REQUESTING & IMPLEMENTING PARTNER INFORMATION

The Eglise du Christ au Congo/ ECC is a network of protestant churches in North-Kivu It functions under the supervision of a provincial President, assisted by a vice-president for general organisation of spiritual activities and social deeds. The Diakonie department is in charge of the Emergency Unit which has over the years gained comprehensive experience in assisting vulnerable people and victims of armed conflicts and other natural disasters.

ECC /North-Kivu is responsible for projects but all activities are co-ordinated by the diakonie which has 10 years experience. During those years, this department has been supported by national and international NGOs among which the UNHCR during the in 1994. In the last two years the department of emergency has assisted war displaced people and also the victims of the Goma volcano eruption of January 2002, through funds raised in Appeals AFDC 21 and AFDC 31.

ECC/NK Partners are:: CBCA, CEBCE, CEPAC, CECA 20, CAC, CELPA, CLMK, CLMC and CADAF – all experienced in the emergency domain and informed about the requirements of ACT, the Humanitarian Code of Conduct and SPHERE standards.

III. DESCRIPTION of the EMERGENCY SITUATION

Background: In 1992 there were severe armed conflicts in the province of North-Kivu which resulted in hundreds of thousands of people to be displaced. Then followed a wave of Rwandan refugees 1994 following the genocide in that country where over 800,000 people were killed. Then another war broke out in 1996 and another one followed in 1998. The most recent disaster to hit North Kivu was the Goma volcano in January 2002. The volcano further displaced people who were already traumatised by the war. The IDPs faced severe hardships lacking basic humanitarian needs such as food, medical care, water, shelter, and clothing and it was only through the assistance of the international community that some form of assistance could be obtained.

Current situation. The current situation in North Kivu including the town of Goma is still not safe for the majority of people, as there is still rampant human rights violations, impunity, looting of the country resources, rape of women and girls and general disorder as the disarmed militia and soldiers use the power of the gun to commit the crimes. While the war can be said to have ended, this lawlessness has created a serious problem of insecurity in the province. The humanitarian organisations are doing a great job to assist people affected by the war and also victims of the volcano although many areas still cannot be reached due to insecurity.

For example:

Period Place Affected persons Observation January - Masisi, Goma & 1325 raped girls & For an eight month period women of the Protestant December 2003 neighbouring women Federation have assisted 1,325 raped persons area January 2002 - Mugunga Camp 328 cases of child For that two-year period some have been reintegrated but December 2003 malnutrition others died. Those who remain still suffer malnutrition. The local authority has contributed by providing them a

From the year Ziralo, 2,034 Families 10,005 families in great resettlement difficulties 1998 (2nd war) Tushunguti, & surrounding area

Information source: This information was received from the Provincial Federation of Protestant Women, the Cultural Centre in charge of children and unmarried mothers, the Baptist Community in Central Africa, the Community of Baptist Churches in the East of Congo and the Pentecostal Community.

Impact on Human Life ƒ The permanent displacement of the population far from their farms eleven years ago has brought about food insecurity. ƒ ƒ Houses, schools and health centres have been burnt and the crops abandoned. Those farms not razed have been looted by the various militias.

Statistics ƒ 11 health centres destroyed or burnt; ƒ 626 schools destroyed or burnt in 1998-99 and 754 others in 2001-2002 (only protestant denominational schools included here). ƒ The offices of CEPAC, CBCA, CEBCE and CEASJ protestant denominational schools and 46 classes were demolished by the volcano lava in Goma, in 2002 ƒ Roads were destroyed and neglected. ƒ Naturals resources like gold, wood, tea, and coffee etc. have been looted and some water supplies have been destroyed.

Present Situation

Displaced people After the signature of SUN CITY agreements in South Africa, the Kinshasa formation of the national union government and the security situation in the villages, the Mai Mai and Interahamwe have begun handing in their weapons to MONUC and many displaced people are returning to their villages. They are impoverished and totally lack the basic necessities such as shelter, sufficient food, clothes and working tools to restart agriculture.

Female victims of sexual violence The situation which has prevailed and still does in certain areas of the province has made many women and girls vulnerable to rape and sexual abuse. The Provincial Federation of Protestant Women (PFPW) in Goma have reported 1,500 raped woemn who have been abandoned by their families due to the stigmatisation of such an ordeal. 570 of these women are in a critical situation as they have suffered physical injury to their reproductive organs and need surgery. Unfortunately, there are no facilities to assist them and the injuries are left to heal naturally resulting in some of the women ending up being maimed for life or dying from the injuries. The PFPW do their best to provide basic treatment and offer counselling to the women under their care.

DRC – Relief & Rehabilitation 39 AFDC-41 Appeal

Pygmy children Pygmies, being a minority ethnic group in Congo, are isolated and live a desolate life in the forest. They are marginalized and looked upon as sub-humans. When caught by militias, they are used as carriers of goods and when they are no longer useful, slaughtered and in some cases eaten.

CBCA has identified and rescued more than 95 pygmy families who are now living close to other communities and have been accepted by other people. But the pygmies are still struggling to cope with the new life and currently, most of their children do not attend school. CBCA has constructed a school in the community where both the pygmy children and children of other community members could attend classes. Slowly a number of pygmy children have been enrolled in the school but the school requires a lot of basic items to function adequately. It is hoped that when the pygmies still living in the forests see the benefits that their colleagues are getting by integrating into the communities they will also opt to live alongside/with other communities and benefit from the social services being offered.

Building of 40 permanent shelters for disaster victims of the volcano Since the volcano eruption two years ago, more than 1,500 families still live in temporary broken down plastic shelters which are a danger to their security. Furthermore, thieves have been terrorising the inhabitants by simply walking into the broken shelters and taking whatever little goods they find. Woman have also been reported raped in some of these shelters. Children have been exposed to severe colds and contracted pneumonia and other illnesses. The ECC/NK Emergency Department has selected a minimum of 40 families who are extremely vulnerable and through this appeal, wish to build some decent habitable houses for them.

Abandoned and Malnourished Children At Mugunga village, 500 children have been identified with serious malnutrition and other problems as they have no families and live on their own in very difficult situations. 218 of these children urgently require therapeutic feeding, otherwise they are in danger of dying. Disaster victim women at Mugunga have organised themselves and formed the Cultural Centre in Charge of Children and Unmarried Mothers in order to save the life of those children by building a nutritional centre. However, funds are required to assist the centre in providing for the basics needs for the children.

Capacity building for members of ECC/NK members As the east of DRC has been undergoing different emergency situations for the last 10 years, the ECC church members require a lot of capacity building initiatives to improve on the delivery of services to their communities. To the present moment, the church remains the most effective institution in providing services to people affected by the war and other calamities. The ECC/NK is therefore, planning to have seminars for its member churches in BENI, BUTEMBO and GOMA.

Rehabilitation of 7 classrooms In its wake, the volcano damaged most of the schools in Goma town and temporary ones built out of plastic sheeting were hurriedly constructed in the aftermath of the volcano under the volcano appeal AFDC-21. The structures are now completely damaged from the weather and permanent classroom structures need to be put into place. As the teachers are not paid by the government, parents have to pay school fees and those that cannot afford those fees have no access to education. This adds to the misery of the children as few can attend school. ECC-NK would therefore, like to rehabilitate 7 classrooms in Goma and make them into permanent structures.

I. REQUESTING ACT MEMBER ƒ Eglise Evangélique Luthérienne au Congo « EELC » (Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Congo)

II. REQUESTING ACT MEMBER & PARTNER INFORMATION

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Congo (EELC) implement projects though its development office located in Goma in North-Kivu.

It recently implemented AFDC 21 appeal in favour of the victims of the Nyiragongo volcano eruption as well as AFDC 31 appeal for the socio- economic rehabilitation of the Nyiragongo victims.

As one of BOAD’s partners, the EELC has already implemented an AIDS prevention project in the camps sheltering Nyiragongo victims as well as a project for 208 families promoting market-gardening in Kimoka and Luhonga villages.

Currently, with the FAO, the EELC is executing a drainage project of marshes in the Masisi (Luhonga- Buroha). For the 2004 appeal, the EELC will intervene according to its capacity in the following aspects: ƒ Support to farming activities in favour of the volcano victims ƒ Provide socio-medical care to female victims of sexual violence ƒ Education on the prevention of HIV/AIDS.

III. SITUATION in the TARGETED LOCATION

At Mugunga site outside Goma, almost 7,000 disaster-stricken families, around 42,000 people, have been settled there by the local authorities since June 2003 without being provided means to survive on their own. Humanitarian organisations present in Goma have also not been providing structured assistance to this population. 1,500 families are particularly very vulnerable as they have no access to gardens where they grow vegetables for food. At the same time no relief assistance has come their way. This has led to many children and women resort to begging and loitering aimlessly around. Some of the women end up prostituting in order to get food for their families, while most of the men go into town to look for manual work - mostly in vain. Malnutrition is therefore very high in the community especially among the children. At Kibumba, Sake, Mudja, Karuba and the surroundings areas, 600 women and girls have been identified as infected by sexually transmitted diseases – mostly as a result of rape, but there has been no medical care availed to them. Most of these extremely traumatised women have been chased away from their homes by their husbands and are receiving no assistance.

The volcano victims residing at Mugunga, and the population of Sake, Kibumba and Mudja, victims of the war are ill informed or not informed at all on HIV/AIDS and its dangers to the population. As such, promiscuity in these areas is very high indeed – a situation that is exacerbated by too much idle time on their hands. According to statistics from the North Kivu Provincial Office, a sample test carried out on 19 – 22 November 2003 on 10 women for HIV/AIDS, 6 were confirmed positive, clearly indicating the seriousness of the matter.

All the referred to areas are easily accessible by road and therefore, relief aid can reach the people if made available. The churches would like to assist by targeting the worst cases in these communities.

V. GOAL & OBJECTIVES

Goal The overall goal is to provide basic relief assistance as well as promote agricultural activities that will bring back dignity and some normalcy into the lives of the Goma volcano and war victims living in North Kivu. As HIV/AIDS infection is widespread due to a high level of promiscuity HIV/AIDS prevention information sessions will be organised.

Objectives ƒ For ten months provide assistance to 500 families to produce beans, maize, soya beans, cabbage, leek, tomatoes and plant-eggs to put them on the road to self sufficiency. ƒ Provide the 395 girls and women, victims of sexual violence with psychotherapeutic and medical assistance for 12 months. ƒ Make available more information about HIV/AIDS to more or less 2,300 beneficiaries during a period of 6 months.

Obtain Nevirapin for the health Nevirapin is available in the centres maternity units so that the midwife can administer it at birth. Organise monitoring & evaluation The project development is observed and the quality of work and the project impact are ensured

Implementation Strategy Upon the procurement of agriculture inputs, the Programme Manager, together with the beneficiaries’ committee will distribute them to the beneficiaries. Each family will receive 25 kg of beans, 20 kg of maize, 2 hoes, 1 machete: the other tools will be kept by the committee. The quantity of seeds will depend on the area ploughed for each beneficiary. The seeds will be given on credit basis to be repaid from the harvest. This will make it possible for more people benefit from the program. An agronomist will be assisting the people in the agricultural programs. The beneficiary families will also be receiving relief food as this will assist in ensuring that that seed meant for planting is not consumed.

The Programme Manager will monitor the development of field activities at least 4 times per month.

The health animators will visit victims of sexual violence in their homes and sensitise and direct them to the nearest health centres or hospitals for appropriate treatment and medical care. The project will sign a collaboration contract with the health centre and the hospitals for the victims. During their stay in hospital, the Programme Manager will carry out a monitoring visit at least twice a month per health centre/hospital to check on the improvements of the patients. A psychotherapist will talk regularly to the patients. After the victim is cured, the secretary-accountant will pay the bill and the Programme Manager will give the beneficiary 25kg of beans, 2 hoes, 1 machete and some clothing.

Sensitisation sessions will be carried out by animators, taking into considering the different age groups.

Each session will start either with the projection of a film, or with the showing of an image box about a well selected theme, according to the age of the group and the message to convey. The projection will be punctuated by exchanges about the film. At the end of the session, the participants under the supervision of the animators will build up a summary of the information received and draw lessons on the ways to prevent themselves being infected by HIV / AIDS. Meanwhile the animators will ask volunteers to go to have themselves tested and also will tell them about the availability of Nevirapin for the protection of the unborn child from HIV / AIDS at the selected health centres. At the end of all the sessions planned in an area, an information post will be fixed and condoms and leaflets will be made available at supply points.
