Below are other areas of Intervention:

  • Water and Sanitation - Women are in many cases the main care takers of the families in Somalia. They supply the household with water, food and are the key people that promote hygiene in their families. WOCCA supports families by giving women, children and men access to hygiene facilities like latrines. Read More
  • Emergency Response - Somalia is a country hit by both war as well as natural disasters. Apart from the conflicts, almost every year there are floods occurring in the areas we work in and at the same time droughts can occur, heavily affecting the livelihoods of agro pastoralists. Read More
  • Agriculture and Food Security - Women in Somalia are increasingly becoming vulnerable in all aspects of life in the human contest. Life in Middle Shabelle is becoming of inferior quality by the day for women and children (Girls and Boys) and the situation is treating them too unsympathetically. Read More
  • Livelihood - WOCCA has been supporting the livelihoods of the most vulnerable people in Somalia since 1996. A large percentage of WOCCA's projects are in the Livelihoods Sector. Read More
