Food and Income Security

Reducing poverty is critical while addressing food insecurity. Poor people spend a large share of their income on food, leaving them vulnerable to high food prices, and many poor people obtain much of their income from farming, leaving them vulnerable to declines in agricultural output.

AAH-I works with communities to: Increase household food availability Improve household nutrition Enhance the security of income in households Improve climate change mitigation and adaptation.


We focus on building capacities to prevent and prepare for emergencies and strengthening primary health care at community level which will reduce the vulnerabilities of the community particularly women, children and youth.

AAH-I works to: Improve access and utilization of essential maternal and child health and adolescent and youth sexual reproductive health services Ensure that communities are protected from infectious and communicable diseases Improve access to safe water, adequate sanitation and hygiene

Education and Life Skills

We use long-term sustainable approaches in the development and protracted humanitarian situations and short-term approaches during acute humanitarian crisis. We tackle the root causes of factors that contribute to late enrolment by boys and girls, poor learning outcomes and dropping out of school.

We endeavor to achieve these by pursuing the following result areas: Children have access to quality pre-primary and primary education Increase access to alternative basic education and accelerated learning programs Improve youth vocational and life skills

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management

AAH-I has prioritized a holistic approach to disaster risk reduction and management by focusing on the following key areas to:

We will mainstream and integrate them effectively through the operational framework that will render better results in terms of inclusive targeting, empowerment, engagement and responsiveness to operating contexts.
