OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

We are focusing on responding to the development challenges of the transitional period and creating sustainable livelihood, economic empowerment and job creation for youth and women.

Partnerships are being fostered to address the most urgent population needs through initiatives for community revitalization that aim to urgently restore livelihoods and kick start productivity of affected communities through distribution of productive inputs, reintegration and other goods and services aiming at the empowerment of vulnerable groups.

By strengthening youth and women resilience and improving their adaptive capacities through pre-emptive measures, we are making contribution to prevent future escalation of grievances and tensions among youth and women and thus to enhance peace building, political, economic and social stability.
