livelihoods initiative working with ultra-poor households

Gender Inclusive Pathways out of Poverty

Aus Aid Identifier


The Gender Inclusive Pathways out of Poverty project is a DFAT and ANCP funded livelihoods initiative working with ultra-poor households in climate vulnerable communities in the Ukhiya and Teknaf subdistricts of Cox’s Bazar. The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Cox’s Bazar has brought with it an influx of Rohingya refugees, adding to the existing economic challenges for these ultra-poor households. Child safety has also become an issue, as desperately poor families are driven to marry off their children or have them work hazardous jobs to make ends meet. The project will address the economic, climate and child safety related challenges faced by the target communities, utilizing a 3 pronged approach of the ultra-poor graduation model, complemented with disaster risk reduction (DRR) interventions and capacity building on child protection.
