Widows are very helpless, lead painful lives, called unlucky, neglected, deprived, sexually harassed, and become victims of trafficking in society as they are illiterate, unconscious, resource-less and sheltered with minor children, so, they are unemployed and income-less. If they are trained up, involved in poultry rearing, cage fish rearing and sewing businesses, they can get employment, earning opportunities & could be able to lead improved life with children, and build resources and shelters
This is a coastal disaster prone, poverty-stricken area and lived by 5,000 widows and 95% are under poverty line, illiterate, unconscious and unskilled, so, there is no employment and earning opportunity, which make lives of these widows tragic and miserable who have minor children. Most of them live on fishing and due to different disasters, many fishermen die during fishing, so, many widows live in miseries. They have minor children, have no income, have no employment, have no resources.
We will identify 350 poor widows, educate, organize them, form small groups, provide skills training on poultry rearing, cage fish culture and sewing to 150 widows and provide them capital support to undertake poultry rearing, cage fish culture and opening tailoring shops in project areas, provide technical and supervisory supports, create marketing for their products etc. So, they will get employment and income earning opportunities to maintain their families, which will solve economic problems
350 poor widows are educated, skilled on different trades, involve economic and productive activities, earn regular incomes, so, improved their family economy, ensured food security, created employment etc. they are benefited with their family members i.e. children and girls will be benefited, increased social values, develop ownerships, promote gender relations, increase participation in decision makings more poor community women are encouraged and involve economic and productive activities.
