Our Impacts

We strive to address challenges resulting from human insecurity through building considerable capacity within at NCS and District field offices to effectively and strategically plan and implement educational programmes that benefit and support both access to basic primary education and skills development among the children and youth in the respective communities Kenema, Kailahun and Pujehun districts.

We work to ensure community resilience against the worst consequences of human and man-made hazards through preparedness and response mechanisms. The focus will continue to be on activities aimed at reducing the impact of future disasters and vulnerability of the population by ensuring that effective disaster preparedness measures are in place. Restoring Human security and development initiatives in all its aspects is given more focus in 2015-2020 in line with the current Development needs, MDGs and SDGs commitments for Sierra Leone. The development of disaster management committees, child protection committees, women rights promotion platforms and action teams in communities shall be given prominence. As one major component of disaster prevention, the role of MOPADA in environmental management and development has gained more attention from the community and is given critical priority too and shall specifically engage in strategic partnership to ensure food security efforts in its programme areas to alleviate the challenges caused by famine.

MOPADA works to ensure that Education institutions have policies, systems, and materials in place to provide quality education to increased numbers of people, particularly women and marginalised communities.

We build the capacity of marginalised rural communities to negotiate and access development resources in a sustainable manner through the use of gender sensitive learning, and as a result of partnerships between government, civil society and the private sector.

It is the program mandate areas of MOPADA to complement the work of the Government and other agencies to meet the health needs of the Country. The overall focus under this strategic area is strengthen further the work of MOPADA in improving the health status of individuals, households and entire communities to prevent and manage infections and diseases arising from common hygiene and sanitation related diseases and other publichealth related emergencies and Sexually transmitted diseases among the adolescents. MOPADA shall continue to strive to increase the rate of awareness, prevention, management and provision of hardware facilities to schools, health units and communities respectively to improve the effectiveness of the structures and systems. Attention is also placed on building more capacity in social mobilization to improve sexual and reproductive health among adolescents for behavioural change, community management of hygiene, water and sanitation. For 2016-2021, MOPADA will scale up interventions to reduce impact of EBOLA especially on Ebola Orphaned and vulnerable children and Women and improve human insecurity and its impacts in communities. The above shall be achieved through stronger linkages with resource systems, building capacities for scale up, and effective targeting.
