Our Programmes

Over the years, Dorcas Mozambique has build her expertise and experience on the following Approaches and Cross Cutting Themes.

Future for Children
The success of a child starts in the community at home, in a stable and caring family. This method is geared towards strengthening children, capacitating the care-takers with parenting skills and communities to respond to the needs of children and create a loving, safe and caring environment for them to grow up in. Future for Children programme will support children, youth and adults with Social and Financial Life Skills, and to build their self-esteem by using the Aflatoun methodology. It will also set up or strengthen Community Protection, offering them a support structure in their community. In this respect, in the target

Farm and Field School Plus
Within this approach, the initial focus is on staple crops, but as farmers continue to meet on a weekly basis, project staff will identify beneficiaries with additional aspirations and interests. Farmers who want to produce cash crops for the market Dorcas will provide support on irrigation and other water technologies. FFS Plus encourages the use of low-cost greenhouses in order to take advantage of high prices in the off-season, and will support the establishment of commercial businesses.

Meanwhile, access to capital will also be promoted through establishment of Savings groups and referral to local MFIs. The FFS+ model further allows for periodic discussions about issues that are important in the specific setting and context, such as domestic violence, HIV/AIDS, SRHR, nutrition, etc. A particular ‘add-on’ to the program is the provision of literacy. Important to mention is that not all initial participants have to go through the same process. For example, some may prefer to just follow the FFS to increase Food security without going into entrepreneurial activities. The flexibility of this approach is its strength.
