Livelihoods and Resilience

Goal: Improved livelihoods and resilience for youth, households, and communities so as to enhance the wellbeing of children

We achieve the above goal by empowering households to adopt improved farming methods, engage in small businesses, actively participate in Village Savings and Loans Associations/Groups (VSLA) as well as other income generating activities. This ensures that children are well nourished and that caregivers are able to provide well for them.
