Builiding Secure Livelihoods
The project model uses a series of approaches to ensure households have economic and financial knowledge and support, and an understanding of risk and how to plan for the future. Families learn how to increase productivity and profitability, alongside sustainable management of all their resources (natural, social and economic.). We establish and strengthen a savings culture, and financial inclusion through savings groups for nutrition. We help families – and whole communities – to be more resilient with Community-Based Disaster Risk Management. We promote development of Local Value Chains and Market Systems that work for the rural producers.
