Achieving more with shock sensitive social protection

Sophie's story

Benefitting from Shock Sensitive Social Protection (SSSP) means so much more to Sophie Samuel, a Mtukula Pakhomo beneficiary in Balaka district, Kanyama Village.

SSSP meets the seasonal needs, prepares for and responds to unpredictable shocks in cooperation with the humanitarian sector and supporting recovery and the return to regular programming.

Through SSSP, the Government and humanitarian partners leverage social protection systems to provide assistance to vulnerable groups of people in times of crisis.
