This project will provide a range of farm-based livelihood for girls with them doing the livelihood activities on their free time either singly or in neighborhood groups in order for them to generate income, be free and independent able to use the income for their own education and advancement.
Girls in remote barrios have so much free time in their hands. When they are not productive, the mind is into something else. Some of them migrate to cities with friends contacting them and most often they fall to bad elements. Meanwhile there are a lot of resources in the farm where they can earn good income.
We will provide start-up capital for the girls who are willing to undertake livelihood activities. Aside from the capital, we will provide mentoring and training and monitoring of their livelihood activities. The process will go on and on as the repayments from the original amount will be recycled for other girls waiting for capital. Sources of livelihoods are many such as spice making, food vending, handicrafts, raising of small animals, and so on, the potentials are endless.
The project will empower girls so that they are able to improve their social and economic situation and help in the advancement of their communities. The girls will be productive and in such a situation, they also contribute to the improvement of their communities.
