This project will equip and impact 1,200 poor women with meaningful skills and technology<br />to increase production, generate more income for children education,<br />shelter,health and etc. thereby alleviating poverty. Skills acquired can be<br />transferred to others in and around the community eventually contributing to<br />the development in their communities. It will also offer them opportunity as a<br />cooperateive groups to received micro-loans (small amounts of money<br />with a small interest rate attached), allowing them to establish or expand<br />businesses relating to sanitation and hygiene. This helps them generate more<br />income and in turn offer micro-loans to their members, for everyday basics<br />(like food and medicine) or to establish their own businesses – fuelling even<br />more income generation and helping more women gain financial independence.
Sustainable development goals
1. No PovertyEnd poverty in all its forms everywhere. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality.
By 2030, eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere, currently measured as people living on less than $1.25 a day
By 2030, reduce at least by half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions according to national definitions
2. Zero HungerEnd hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. The food and agriculture sector offers key solutions for development, and is central for hunger and poverty eradication.
By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round
By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons
By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment
8. Decent Work and Economic GrowthPromote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs.
Sustain per capita economic growth in accordance with national circumstances and, in particular, at least 7 per cent gross domestic product growth per annum in the least developed countries
Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors
By 2030, achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value
By 2020, substantially reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training
