Sustainable Livelihoods Program

The Sustainable Livelihoods Program (SLP), seeks to create preconditions for four targeted communities in Burkina Faso, Kenya, and Uganda to be economically empowered through holistic interventions that will enable them to acquire sustainable livelihoods. The program further seeks to empower community members in the targeted communities advocating, championing and enjoying their EconomicSocial, and Cultural (ECOSOC) rights. In addition, the program seeks to ensure that these communities participate in, contribute to, and benefit from the various development initiatives implemented among them in a way that respects their dignityrecognizes the value of their contribution, and provides equal opportunities for all. The program is designed to empower communities to respond to and build resilience to the different stressors, shockers, and unexpected events that create volatility in household incomes, poverty statuses, and consumption that are frequent in developing countries, specifically the targeted communities. The program will contribute to the realisation of the following sustainable development goals:

Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms


Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture


Goal 3: Good health and well-being


Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning opportunities for all


Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth


Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions
