To assist vulnerable populations of South Kivu, the United States Bureau for International Development’s (USAID) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) awarded Mercy Corps the implementation of a 5-year Resilience Food Security Activity (RFSA) from September 2016–September 2021, and later granted a 2-year extension through 2023. The South Kivu Food Security Project (FSP)-Enyanya  RFSA operates in three health zones (Kalehe (territory of Kalehe), Miti-Murhésa, and Katana (territory of Kabare) with a life of award budget of approximately $62 million. The FSP-Enyanya RFSA’s overall goal is “improved food and nutrition security and economic well-being of vulnerable households in South Kivu” and targets approximately 36,000 households.

In 2021, under the USAID BHA Implementer-Led Evaluation and Learning (IMPEL) Associate Award with Save the Children, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (Tulane) was subcontracted to conduct an interim evaluation, including a population-based survey (PBS) and a resilience assessment of the FSP-Enyanya RFSA.
