Financed by USAID from 2014 to 2019, ASOTRY project aimed to reduce food insecurity among targeted communities in the Amoron’i Mania, Haute Matsiatra, and Atsimo Andrefana regions of Madagascar.
To implement this project, ADRA partnered with Land O’Lakes (LOL) and Association Intercooperation Madagascar (AIM), both of which have extensive experience in Madagascar and expertise in food security. ASOTRY, meaning “harvest” in Malagasy, resulted in substantial and tangible improvements in malnutrition, agricultural productivity, household livelihoods and resilience by addressing the major underlying causes of food security.
ZINA, meaning ‘abundance’, was implemented from 2015 to 2019 in Ampanihy, southern Madagascar, with funding from the German Federal Ministry of Cooperation and Economic Development (BMZ).
