Food security – People from the poor section of society are encouraged to form local Self Help Groups. The groups are supported through facilitators to develop their own vision, by-laws and chose their relevant activities. Through weekly meetings and weekly savings, people learn to know each other, and also build up a common fund. As time goes on, the group can start giving loans to its members. Gargaar has initiated a working group on SHGs in Somaliland, involving also the government. This helps to use a common approach and increase effectiveness.

This programme is supported through the partnership with the Dutch government on chronic crisis situations
