Preventing youth migration


The project aims to enable 60 vulnerable families from three villages to improve their livelihoods by developing income-generating activities. The goal is to prevent the early migration, trafficking and/or exploitation of young children. To do so, it supports food crop production in three, 2,500 m2 community fields, made available through an agreement with the local authorities. The families will benefit from training in organic farming methods to improve their skills and the yields of their gardens. The project will also provide educational activities and training for vulnerable children and youths in the villages.
