Challenge

Poor women, especially that of single, women-led households are often at a severe disadvantage. They need food, nutrition and livelihood support for long-term survival. When they reside in poor communities, their neighbors are equally poor too and would not be able to help themselves. There is a great need to improve their situation so that they are able to live with dignity, fully participating in the life of the community,

Solution

The project will provide immediate food and nutrition assistance to poor women. Then we will mount a comprehensive program of livelihood support that will include training, provision of start-up capital and mentoring so that they are able to sustain their business. In so doing we help them surmount the great difficulty that they are facing.

Long-Term Impact

Improvement in the lives of poor women through direct food and nutrition support and livelihood nurturing in order for them to be active and good members of the communities where they are located.
