Angola: IDA to Strengthen Support to Peasant Families

Caála — The Agrarian Development Institute (IDA) will create this year 42 countryside schools mainly to cater for 15.000 peasant families in the municipalities of Mungo, Luduimbali and Bailundo (central Huambo Province).

This programme is part of the project dubbed Family Agriculture Turned to the Market (MOSAP) estimated at 2.4 million US dollars.

Speaking on Wednesday to ANGOP, the co-ordinator of the MOSAP project in Huambo, Cyprien Ndambi Ndoki, informed that the programme belongs to IDA in partnership with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Angolan NGO Action for Rural Development and Environment (ADRA).

"The MOSAP programme is about improving the agricultural and socioeconomic assistance techniques of peasant families", he explained.

The MOSAP project is currently being implemented in the provinces of Bié, Malanje and Huambo.
