Livelihood

Balochistan, the largest province in area and the smallest in population, is bestowed with enormous natural resources which unfortunately could not bring substantial improvement in the socio-economic condition of its inhabitants, particularly the rural poor and still showing extremely slow progress in certain indicators of Human Development Index (HDI) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Considering the significance of livelihood enhancement for rural poor, LEP has been recognized as one of the major programmatic areas that contributed significantly in the improved socio-economic conditions of rural poor households (HHs) on sustainable basis. BRSP has also strengthened a strong network of CIs through its philosophy at grassroots that has indeed complimented the efforts of GoB for the development of social capital in the province and ultimately transformed the communities into viable agents of development process.

The highlights of BRSP’s contribution in livelihood sector are as under:
