Challenge

In the project area, 60% of vulnerable households are in dire need of support. These do not have enough food or resources to produce enough to cover their food needs. Poor households are still vulnerable climatic or other shocks to their livelihood. Low or no income to set up income generating projects is still a very big challenge. All the above subject vulnerable families to chronic poverty.

Solution

Food insecure households who do not have enough land or resources to produce enough to cover their food needs will be supported. The vulnerable will be trained and supported to start sustainable income generating projects which include poutry, goats rearing and piggery.More so since most of these households are headed by women, these will be trained in agri business skills.

Long-Term Impact

95% of vulnerable households will have sustainable income generating projects that enable them to enough food. Supported families will be self reliant after the project's support and training in agri businness skills.
