The CRLESP has been operating in the four districts—Masaiti, Mpongwe,Kalululshi and Luanshya— of the Copperbelt since October 2010, with the goal of enhancing livelihoods through integrated agricultural production; enterprise development; and promoting human health, water and sanitation.
Heifer International, the lead implementing organization, has partnered with the National Food and Nutrition Commission and Village Water Zambia as part of the strategy to achieve holistic sustainable community development.
The project has worked closely with government partners from the Ministry of Community Development and Mother and Child Health and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock. These ministries have also been providing training and monitoring project activities. Review and planning meetings are held monthly at the community level to enhance the partnership and project ownership by participants.
To date the project has reached 2,937 families through various interventions: 140 through provision of livestock, 120 through vegetable production, 120 through human nutrition, 82 through agroforestry, and 2,495 through water and sanitation activities.
