The Programme also delivered 14 trainings courses on livestock management, kitchen gardening, crop production and handicrafts for men and women participants. The uniqueness of this project lies in two facts;
1) This is the first cash based initiative in NWA
2) Involvement of 106 women in training component who were further facilitated with the provision of cash for their participation.
The programme engaged each beneficiary in three rounds/cycles of activities, and received PKR 6000 cash for each activity completed.
Apart from the cash assistance, food-based Livelihood Programme is also benefiting vulnerable families of Datta Khel and Ghulam Khan Tehsil of NWA.
