DDI is implementing a USAID Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project as a sub-grantee to the Catholic Relief Services (CRS). The project, which is based in rural communities in Kebbi, Sokoto, Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States as well as the Federal Capital Territory, uses a multi-sector approach to provide support to very poor households by growing their agricultural production, increasing incomes and improving the nutrition of children. The project is helping 52,000 very poor households grow their agriculture production, incomes, and improve household nutrition in the targeted States and the FCT.
The intervention is moving returnees, host communities, vulnerable households and internally displaced persons from dependency on humanitarian assistance to engage in agriculture and other economic activities. This is being achieved by building the capacity of the beneficiaries that will result into increased agricultural production and diversified source of income.
