To improve the livelihood situation at household level within the target communities. 3rd phase of the project has encompassed social problems like the idleness of the youth, poverty of women and problems related to harmful traditional practices in addition to agricultural and health related issues. Communities living in the program area are very poor in terms of agricultural productive, health status, potable water supply, assets building opportunity and environmental condition. The experience gained in the first and second project phases (2006-2012) has significant inputs for designing third phase project document. The main objective of this project is to contribute in addressing the long term food insecurity problem of the target communities. The overall effect of these interventions is to reduce the problem of long term food insecurity and improve the living standard of people with in the target communities. The goal of the third phase is to contribute to the livelihood improvement in the target communities through improved health status, potable water supply and enhanced agriculture production and household income level. Concrete outputs are partly similar as during the previous phases. However, the 3rd phase focuses e.g. on unemployed youth who are in a risk of being "wasted generation" due to lack of work, chat and HIV/AIDS and risky immigration as a solution for the situation.
