Livelihoods

There is a link between livelihood opportunities and extreme poverty. We also know that livelihood is much more beyond income generation and employment. At FAE we work in the rural communities to promote sustainable livelihood opportunities in order to increase incomes, ensure nutritional  food security and eradicate extreme poverty. While working in the rural communities, we give special focus on the most poor and vulnerable women and young people. We focus on promoting livelihood opportunities img_7077 not only as a human right but also as a pathway to ending extreme poverty and building sustainable developed communities. We promote livelihoods opportunities in both farming and non-farming activities.

Through our livelihoods promotion process, the most poor and vulnerable are supported and given opportunity to expand their economic opportunities so as to have positive impact in their lives, on the local economy and on the building of sustainable development in their communities. Efforts to eradicate extreme poverty in all its forms before 2030 cannot be realized without addressing the issue of economic inequality and other cultural and social factors that hinder development of the most poor and vulnerable especially women and young people.
