FOOD SECURITY: TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES INTO HEALTHY AND PRODUCTIVE FOOD-SECURE VILLAGES AND ENSURING RELIABLE AND CONSISTENT ACCESS TO SAFE, AFFORDABLE, ABUNDANT, AND DIVERSE SUPPLIES OF NUTRITIOUS FOOD NOT ONLY REDUCES SUSCEPTIBILITY TO DISEASE AND OTHER HEALTH RISKS, PARTICULARLY IN CHILDREN, IT ALSO IMPROVES FAMILY INCOME AND NEAR- AND LONG-TERM ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. (DESCRIPTION CONTINUED ON SCHEDULE O) - COUNTERPART IS IMPLEMENTING THE FOUR-YEAR (SEPTEMBER 2014 - SEPTEMBER 2018), $9.5M MCGOVERN-DOLE INTERNATIONAL FOOD FOR EDUCATION CHILD NUTRITION (FFE) PROGRAM IN 270 SCHOOLS IN THE SAINT LOUIS REGION OF SENEGAL. THE FFE PROGRAM CONTRIBUTES TO DEVELOPING MORE SELF-RELIANT, PRODUCTIVE COMMUNITIES BY EQUIPPING COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO IMPROVE FOOD SECURITY, REDUCE HUNGER, AND IMPROVE LITERACY AND PRIMARY EDUCATION. IN 2018, COUNTERPART'S MAIN ACHIEVEMENTS INCLUDE: (1) DISTRIBUTION OF 6,888,667 DAILY SCHOOL MEALS TO UP TO 47,329 SCHOOL CHILDREN; (2) DISTRIBUTION OF VITAMIN A AND DE-WORMING MEDICATION DOSAGES TO 46,681 STUDENTS AND 6,578 TEACHERS AND VOLUNTEER COOKS; (3) CONSTRUCTION OF 32 SCHOOL INFRASTRUCTURES SUCH AS LATRINES, WATER STATIONS, AND CLASSROOMS; (4) TRAINING OF 269 COOKS ON HYGIENE STANDARDS, SAFE FOOD PREPARATION, AND STORAGE PRACTICES; (5) CONSTRUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF 204 DURABLE, CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE ENERGY EFFICIENT STOVES; (6) TRAINING OF 274 TEACHERS ON THE SCHOOL HEALTH, NUTRITION AND ENVIRONMENT GUIDE.

ADDITIONALLY, 135 SCHOOL TEACHERS AND SCHOOL DIRECTORS WERE RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR ATTENDANCE, DILIGENCE, AND ENGAGEMENT IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROJECT ACTIVITIES DURING THE STUDENT RECOGNITION DAYS. AS PART OF ITS SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY, COUNTERPART CONTINUED TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THE 20 COMMUNITY FARMS. THIS YEAR, THE FARMS HARVESTED OVER 17 TONS OF RICE, 17 TONS OF ONIONS, 119.5 KG OF TOMATOES, 252KG OF BELL PEPPERS, AND OVER 2 TONS OF EGGPLANT. OVERALL, A TOTAL OF 35.499 METRIC TONS OF COMMODITIES WERE HARVESTED AND USED TO COMPLEMENT THE U.S. DONATED COMMODITIES FOR SCHOOL MEALS. LITERACY LEVELS IMPROVED AS WELL. ACCORDING TO THE FINAL EVALUATION CONDUCTED THIS YEAR BY A THIRD-PARTY EVALUATOR, THE READING AND COMPREHENSION LEVEL OF STUDENTS IN THIRD, FOURTH, AND FIFTH GRADES INCREASED BY 1.5, 1.57 AND 1.5 LEVELS RESPECTIVELY COMPARED TO THE BASELINE.- COUNTERPART IS ALSO IMPLEMENTING A FOOD FOR PROGRESS (FFP) PROGRAM IN GUATEMALA, FUNDED BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. IN 2018, THE PROGRAM CONTINUED TO STRENGTHEN THE CAPACITIES OF THE GUATEMALAN MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE TO EFFECTIVELY MANAGE THE RURAL EXTENSION SYSTEM. 78 EXTENSION AGENTS WERE TRAINED DURING THE YEAR TO PROVIDE QUALITY SERVICES TO THE SMALLHOLDER FARMERS IN THE RURAL WESTERN HIGHLANDS OF THE COUNTRY. COUNTERPART HAS TRAINED MORE THAN 4,000 FARMERS TO INCREASE THEIR PRODUCTIVITY AND HELP THEM ADOPT BETTER TECHNIQUES AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR FARMING. THE PROJECT HAS INITIATED THE PROCESS FOR ESTABLISHING A GRADUATE DEGREE FOR EXTENSION AGENTS WITHIN THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN CARLOS, FOR WHICH IT IS RECEIVING TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FROM UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA DAVIS. 2,300 SMALLHOLDER FARMERS RECEIVED LOANS FROM THE MICOOPE FEDERATION OF FINANCIAL COOPERATIVES TO IMPROVE THEIR AGRICULTURAL INPUTS AND INCREASE REVENUE. THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF COFFEE, ANACAFE, HAVE PROVIDED ON-THE-JOB TRAININGS FOR 2,000 FARMERS TO INCREASE THE PRODUCTION OF COFFEE AND REDUCE THE POST-HARVEST LOSSES AT COFFEE PLANTATIONS. THE OVERALL PRODUCTIVITY OF THE FARMS IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE BY APPROXIMATELY 20% AS A RESULT OF THESE EFFORTS.

PEACE AND SECURITY: CIVIL SOCIETY STRENGTHENING, COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, AND GOOD GOVERNANCE ARE CRITICAL TO BUILDING LEGITIMATE STATES THAT DELIVER FOR THEIR CITIZENS AND PROMOTE LONG-TERM PEACE. LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE GOVERNMENT BUILD INCLUSIVE, RESILIENT, AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES IN WHICH PEOPLE THRIVE. (DESCRIPTION CONTINUED ON SCHEDULE O)- IN AUGUST 2017, USAID AWARDED COUNTERPART THE YOUTH FOR PEACE-BUILDING IN BURUNDI II (Y4PBB II) PROGRAM. IN FY18, THIS $1.67M PROGRAM CONTINUED TO USE THE KNOWLEDGE AND PARTNERSHIPS FORMED DURING THE INITIAL Y4PBB PROGRAM TO PROVIDE YOUTH IN BURUNDI WITH ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES AS ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS TO POLITICALLY-MOTIVATED VIOLENCE. THE NEW PROGRAM IS WORKING TO: (1) BUILD THE CAPACITY OF LOCAL CSOS TO EMPOWER AND SUPPORT YOUTH-LED, POSITIVE CIVIC ENGAGEMENT; (2) ENHANCE ECONOMIC INCENTIVES FOR YOUTH TO PARTICIPATE CONSTRUCTIVELY IN SOCIETY; AND (3) SUPPORT YOUTH-LED PEACEBUILDING AND VIOLENCE-PREVENTION ACTIVITIES. DURING FY18, COUNTERPART ACHIEVED SUCCESS ACROSS ALL THREE OBJECTIVES. FOR OBJECTIVE 1, ITS CSO PARTNERS RECEIVED A SERIES OF AD HOC AND STRUCTURED TRAININGS, FOCUSING ON TOPICS SUCH AS THE DEVELOPMENT OF COST ALLOCATION POLICIES AND FUNDRAISING, CONFLICT SENSITIVITY WORKSHOPS, AND GENDER ACTION PLANS. FURTHERMORE, 13 COMMUNAL-LEVEL YOUTH ADVOCACY NETWORKS AND ONE NATIONAL-LEVEL PLATFORM WERE ESTABLISHED TO ADVOCATE FOR YOUTH'S NEEDS AND ASPIRATIONS IN RELATION TO EMPLOYMENT AND CIVIC PARTICIPATION. OBJECTIVE 2 SAW A HUGE SUCCESS AS MORE THAN 500 YOUTH RECEIVED ENTREPRENEURSHIP SKILLS AND START-UP RESOURCES (THROUGH MICROLOANS, CASH-FOR-WORK, OR START-UP KITS) TO DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT THEIR OWN INCOME-GENERATING ACTIVITIES. FINALLY, UNDER OBJECTIVE 3, COUNTERPART CONTRIBUTED TO THE RESOLUTION OF LOCAL CONFLICTS AND WORKED TO PREVENT VIOLENCE IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AREAS THROUGH A SERIES OF 46 LOCAL YOUTH DIALOGUE ACTIVITIES AND RELATED OUTREACH EVENTS INCLUDING COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS AND SOCCER MATCHES. - COUNTERPART CONTINUED IMPLEMENTING THE RIGHTS AND DIGNITY PROJECT IN EL SALVADOR THROUGHOUT 2018. THE OVERALL GOAL OF THIS FIVE-YEAR INITIATIVE IS TO HELP STRENGTHEN GOVERNMENTAL AND NON-GOVERNMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTION SYSTEMS, RESULTING IN AN INCREASINGLY TOLERANT, JUST, AND EQUITABLE EL SALVADOR. TO THAT END, THE PROJECT IS ENHANCING THE COUNTRY'S HUMAN RIGHTS SYSTEMS WITH AN EMPHASIS ON SECURITY, POLICING, AND ANTI-DISCRIMINATION THROUGH THREE COMPLEMENTARY AND MUTUALLY REINFORCING OBJECTIVES: (1) PROMOTING DEMOCRATIC SPACE; (2) STRENGTHENING HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCACY AND MONITORING OF THE SECURITY SECTOR; AND (3) PREVENTING DISCRIMINATION OF VULNERABLE GROUPS AND IMPROVING THEIR ACCESS TO SERVICES. WITHIN CIVIL SOCIETY, THE PROJECT WORKS WITH VULNERABLE GROUPS, PRIORITIZING FOUR TARGET POPULATIONS: THE LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER, AND INTERSEX (LGBTI) COMMUNITY, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, WOMEN, AND YOUTH AFFECTED BY GANG VIOLENCE. TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS, THE PROJECT WORKS CLOSELY WITH THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SECURITY, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE, AND THE NATIONAL CIVIL POLICE, AS WELL AS WITH TARGETED MUNICIPALITIES. DURING FY18, THE PROJECT FINALIZED AND PUBLICLY PRESENTED THE COLLABORATIVE ROADMAP FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, A DOCUMENT DEVELOPED THOUGH CIVIL SOCIETY DIALOGUES THAT STATES PRIORITY ACTIONS FOR IMPROVING THE HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATIONS OF THE PROJECT'S FOUR PRIORITY POPULATIONS. THE PROJECT ALSO SUPPORTED THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SECURITY TO DEVELOP AND PRESENT AN INTERNAL LGBTI POLICY, THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN EL SALVADOR. IN ADDITION, THE PROJECT AWARDED AN IN-KIND GRANT TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS OMBUDSWOMAN'S OFFICE, WHICH AFFORDS THE INSTITUTION EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES TO CREATE AN INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM THAT WILL BETTER TRACK HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AND AN IN-KIND GRANT TO THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SECURITY TO FINANCE TWO COMMUNICATIONS CAMPAIGNS: ONE TO CURB EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE IN POLICE ACTIONS AND A SECOND TO INTERNALLY PROMOTE THE MINISTRY'S LGBTI POLICY. THE PROJECT ALSO PROVIDED TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE NATIONAL POLICE TO INCORPORATE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS STANDARDS INTO THEIR INVESTIGATIONS AND SUPPORTED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE'S TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE EFFORTS THROUGH A SUB-AWARD TO THE OFFICE OF THE UN HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.
