Through Poverty Reduction Programmes, we address the root causes of poverty and help supplement the income of the marginalised, poor communities. The objective is to improve the standard of living of people living below poverty level. The poverty reduction goal cuts across all our thematic programmes. For example while addressing education; we cannot ignore the negative effect of poverty on children’s education. We cannot provide sustainable access to education without addressing the root causes of poverty.
Our strategy is to build self reliant communities through sustainable economic development programmes. The required skills are provided through the following initiatives.
- Formal and non-formal education
- Vocational training
- Income generating activities/micro enterprise through self help groups
- Agricultural development activities
Linking communities with government schemes and networking with likeminded NGO’s are also part of our intervention plan.
