Livelihood enhancement for disadvantaged households is of utmost importance because globally, the profound negative impact of extreme poverty on children’s development is deeply troubling. This becomes especially clear when considering the intricate link between child nutrition and economic well-being, and the mutual relationship between the two. This situation could become even more critical in the next decade, as projections suggest that the combined consequences of climate change and disaster risks may push approximately 325 million individuals from impoverished backgrounds deeper into extreme poverty, especially in the most vulnerable and economically fragile regions.
Communities facing disadvantages encounter various challenges as they strive to improve the livelihood of their households. Economic pressures, in particular, compel desperate individuals to resort to actions that do not align with the best interests of their children. These actions can sometimes lead to situations like early marriages, child labor, or exploitation.
In addressing this issue, Right Path has empowered over 50 disadvantaged households through its Livelihood initiative, allowing them to establish their own self-sustaining projects. By providing individuals at risk with relevant livelihood knowledge and skills, Right Path has enabled these disadvantaged households to generate income not only for themselves but also for their families and communities.Read More
