Community-Based Livelihoods Development

A five-year partnership with FHI360, funded by the U.S Agency for International Development, provides an integrated approach to community livelihood development through three objectives: 1) improve the livelihood capabilities of vulnerable households including women, youth and caregivers within these households, 2) protect the rights of women and children – particularly orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) and 3) strengthen the capacity and coordination of government institutions, communities and other organizations to protect and promote the social and economic well-being of the target population. TechnoServe is responsible for the implementation of the economic strengthening and promotional activity initiatives in the program. These include value chain development and micro entrepreneurship training of trainers to promote economic development and financial literacy, which will protect and grow the existing assets of women and OVCs.
