Livelihoods Improvement Project in the Himalayas

The objective of the project is to help vulnerable groups in the rugged highlands of the Himalayas improve their livelihoods and develop broader alternatives for income-generating activities. The area of operations includes the most remote and underdeveloped districts in the states of Meghalaya and Uttaranchal. It is expected that poor people in an estimated 1,730 villages in those areas will benefit directly from expanded livelihood opportunities, increased income and greater economic security.

The project provides access to financial services such as credit, savings and insurance, to develop livelihoods and strengthen local institutions. It assists poor rural people in managing new technologies and establishing sustainable cultivation systems, and in organizing business development services that enable them to market products on a larger scale.
