This is one of our exit strategies that we adopt to transit our clients from street life, our program and finally to self-reliance. This support is given to both families and youth in need of livelihoods. We seek to empower poor families as a preventative measure for not only the child who had previously taken to the street from going back, but also as a way of preventing the rest of the siblings following suit.
As an organization we partner with like-minded organizations and persons who write proposals to raise funds for both the livelihoods project and general running of the organization.
The livelihoods project is divided into two departments:
- Businesses run by LID
- Start-ups run by clients
