The recent crises have brought rising unemployment, loss of urban and rural livelihoods, and interruption in public sector salary payments, which in turn are compounding the impact of higher commodity prices and localized commodity shortage. As a result, more people will struggle to meet their needs as livelihoods opportunities erode or vanish, and prices continue to rise. Poverty rate will increase, meaning that people not directly affected by the crises will need humanitarian assistance.
Pure Hands’ livelihood projects aim to assist communities and individuals to rely on themselves through small entrepreneurial projects, including small shops/vending, animal husbandry, motorcycle (for transport) or other relevant livelihood schemes. Such assistance facilitates income generation and promotes the culture of self-reliance.
Pure Hands continued to play a leadership role in the livelihood sector in 2018. This role was evidenced by its efforts to reduce poverty and improve livelihoods of poor households to promote self-esteem and self-reliance. Pure Hands implemented income generating projects for rural women in the areas of vocational training and micro businesses which aimed to improve the economic situation of the target households.
