To break the cycle of poverty, we operate on the principle of helping communities to help themselves. We believe everyone has a potential to lift themselves out of poverty to self-reliance. We empower vulnerable individuals to contribute their ideas and skills to serve their communities and support their families consequently restoring their hope, dignity, and sense of purpose.
We use the “Think Livelihoods toolkit” an approach based on the principle of identifying and mobilizing locally available resources/assets; individual and communal, rather than focusing on problems and needs. We provide livelihoods training to encourage the poorest, most vulnerable families in the communities we serve to recognize what they already have, rather than what they do not have.
