Livelihood Project in rural area

This project was designed both to increase employment opportunities, and to strengthen the resilience of agriculture-based livelihoods in this rural area. It included 2 subsequent phases (of 4 months each) geared at the creation of income-generating opportunities for the families that are the most vulnerable. The project provided employment to 170 families and provided them and others with wholesome food baskets. Throughout this project, 340 vulnerable families generated income by participating in the production of food supplies, and 4000 households has benefitted from the food baskets produced. Each worker receives at average 200 kilos of primary food stuffs to process into food supplies in accordance with his or her expertise. The food produced is packaged as a food basket (FB) in the second phase and distributed to the most vulnerable families selected by L4S. Each FB weighs around 25 kgs.
