Restoration of Livelihood & Community Based Infrastructure

Funded by:

Concern Worldwide

Summary:

MOJAZ Foundation has its presence in Shaheed Benazirabad since 2011. It has implemented 2 projects earlier, one with WFP on general food distribution & second with Concern Worldwide & USAID on transitional shelter with a focus on same target areas. MOJAZ Foundation conducted rapid need assessment study in UC Hamal Faqir to find out the most urgent needs of the community. The study revealed that agriculture and community based infrastructure were the worst hit sectors by the flood. The focus of the project was both economic asset restoration and temporary employment to revive the communities and local market through CFW activities and rehabilitation of productive infrastructure to support livelihood. The project aimed at reviving local economy by introducing CFW activities and rehabilitating productive infrastructure to support livelihoods. MOJAZ has designed this project to offer livelihood support for revival of livelihood in the target regions through repair and restoration of agri lands, water course, link roads and culvert and linking these with cash for work. These activities helped revive the local economy by providing opportunities of temporary employment besides restoring productive assets. The project supported cash against work, enabling communities to meet their basic needs as well as restore agri-lands, water courses to support livelihood. This particularly helped the small farmers to prepare for the upcoming season to revive the cycle of food security; and landless farmers to get cash for their labor. Link roads and culverts are providing access to market to small farmers besides providing easy access to the entire community.
