The MOSAP II project replaces MOSAP I, created with a view to improving food security and reducing poverty in rural areas.

As a result, the production of cassava, sweet potatoes, corn and vegetables was improved, in addition to the construction of irrigation systems to counter the effects of drought.

The project allowed for the creation of 3,972 field schools in the provinces of Bié, Huambo and Malanje, which are contributing to the increase of agricultural produce harvest by the peasants.
