Raising the living standards of refugee families

Tushirikiane posted its project “Raising the living standards of refugee families through income-generating projects” (Project Number 41839) whose main objective is to help refugee women start income-generating activities so that they become self-reliant and contribute to the well-being of their families in August 2019. So far we have managed to raise $ 1,594.12 out of $ 11,707.32 (Ksh. 1,200,000) for the whole project, but the project can be executed in phases depending on the available funds. We are very grateful to those who donated and those who are still donating and will donate towards this project. The project is still active and receiving donations. TUSA has already received a disbursement of $ 996.08 and TUSA is planning to give it out to two individuals who are to start their projects in January 2020 while waiting for more donations to come in and give to more women.

To start, we have held some meetings with Solidarity Group leaders so that they inform our members about the project and start thinking about they can submit in January for financing. This was done in order to give all members an opportunity to work on projects that will be submitted, from which we will choose those that are viable, profitable and best for our purpose (Picture 1).

We have also met some women to encourage them to start thinking about projects that they can submit and to let them know the overall objective of our project of making the beneficiaries of this project self-reliant by saving and empowering women so that they can contribute to the raising the living standards of their families. We have also informed them that we are expecting projects from as from January (Picture).

In our effort to help women come together and form self-help groups, we also identified a group of women who are ready to get together and work together by making liquid soap and selling it, and they intend, later on, to embark on a tie-dye project. They have already started putting together the little money they can get so that they start saving. We are considering assisting them to form one group and finance their initiative in the framework of this project (Picture 3).

The next step is to look into viable and profitable projects and finance them.
