Here are the six elements of the Family Sponsorship Program that empowers families to lift themselves out of extreme poverty:
— Assets to make a living with, for example goats, mules or other livestock, or goods to start an informal store.
— Training on how to manage the new assets.
— Initial cash support to reduce the need to sell the new asset in an emergency.
— Weekly coaching visits to reinforce skills, build confidence and help participants handle any challenges.
— Health education and access to healthcare to stay healthy and able to work.
— A savings account at their local village savings and loan to help save money to invest or use in a future emergency.
