Objective:

The key objectives of the project are to improve the socio-economic status of the poor through improved natural resource management (NRM) and enhanced productive physical and social infrastructure. The project aims to reduce poverty through targeted community based initiatives and to provide support to off-farm income generation activities. Furthermore, it intended to improve literacy and skills of rural poor through vocational training especially for unemployed women. The project had five components that include: a Union Council Development Fund, Targeted Poverty Alleviation Fund (TPAF), Literacy through Skill Training, Support to District Line Agencies and Institutional and Implementation Support. PRSP was contracted to implement the TPAF component of the project in 100 UCs from the four target districts.

The activities include: the formation of at least 23 COs per UC, implementation of 10-12 small scale interventions (at USD 3,000 per intervention) in each UC, provide support to livelihood activities of the poor, business promotion and enterprise development (off-farm income generation) and other project components (agriculture, research and skill based literacy training) and ensure disbursement of Rs. 100 million as micro credit to be provided by PRSP.
