Leading, Accountable and Efficient NGO
PAM has developed to be one of the leading accountable and efficient NGO on the Zambian Food Security Network.
PAM has maintained its highly commended performance by organizing training courses for CBO/NGOs; working closely with them in all programme implementations by enabling them to be efficient and effective in accounting procedures during the execution of projects, at the district level.
NGOs have been trained in project management to build their capacity in rural development and this has turned out to be one of the best achievements that have brought overwhelming results in all PAMs programs.
The Evolution of PAM – From Food Relief to An Expanded Mandate Incorporating Agricultural and Nutrition Development Initially formed to provide services for disaster response, disaster mitigation, and capacity building of partner NGOs in service delivery.
PAM over the last ten years re-aligned its activities from disaster response and mitigation to focus more on drought rehabilitation and development-oriented non-food relief, community-based development activities aimed at improving household food security, income and nutrition.
