Did you know that two-thirds of the world’s one billion hungry live in Asia-Pacific? Reports say that both rural and urban poor spend more than half of their income on food.
With over half of the world’s population, the region faces the challenge of combining rapid growth and creating employment.
To keep pace with poverty and unemployment, World Vision provides livelihood training and facilities to sustain families in providing food and income.
Here, we will show you different World Vision livelihood interventions that maximise local resources to help the most vulnerable – women, elders, farmers, and fisher folks increase their capacities in supporting the basic needs of their children in the long term.
