The biggest challenge that vulnerable groups in communities, rural informal settlements and communal areas face is food insecurity and engaging in meaningful sustainable livelihoods.

MeDRA’s sustainable livelihoods programme aims to achieve household food security through improved agricultural production, improved dietary diversity, improved nutritional status and income generation capacity of benefiting households. MeDRA’s Sustainable Livelihoods programme is reaching to households that are identified and registered as beneficiaries through the Community Profiling process. Identified beneficiaries will benefit from income generating activities such as small livestock rearing (pigs, goats chickens and sheep), sewing, beekeeping, carpentry, Kapenta selling, fish farming and gardening. In addition the programme participants receive support and training in marketing and market linkages.

Therefore advancing the right of poor people to adequate and sustainable livelihoods has been a cornerstone of MeDRA’s work for many decades.
