The first week of operations in January 2016 started out well for Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where we are undertaking survey and clearance operations of areas contaminated with unexploded ordnance (UXO).
In Kabalo territory, NPA operations resulted in the cancellation of two suspected hazardous areas (SHAs) through non-technical survey, in addition to the identification of two artisanal aircraft bombs with an explosive weight of 305kg in Nkende village.
Farmers in South Sudan’s soil rich Morobo County have the capacity to produce enough food to meet market demand if more support is given to them, according to Mr. Yusto kepo, a local farmer.
Yusto is a member of Iraga Producer’s group who received support from the Smallholder Production and Marketing Project (SPMP) implemented by the Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA).
Morobo has a huge agriculture potential with more than 90% of the land being suitable for farming, authorities said.
Among Myanmar's ethnic minorities, few speak Burmese. NPA partner Mon National Education Committee provides education for the Mon minority, preventing minority students from falling behind.
«Many children here cannot speak Burmese when they start school. Most know only Mon language from home. In our school they also learn about Mon history and Mon culture, and English. The most important we can do is to teach the children English».
Farmers in on the world’s most food insecure countries received processing machines from Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) in order to get the most out of their produce. More than 60% of the food sold in the local market is now locally produced.
Kojoba Farmer’s Producer group located in South Sudan’s Yei River County is looking forward to continue adding value to their food produce through the processing machines.
On the 10th of August 2015, NPA Colombia signed an agreement with the European Union for support to the Pilot Project on Humanitarian Demining; a historic collaboration between the Colombian Government and FARC-EP on the clearance of mines and explosives.
