Community Empowerment through Livelihood Development (CELD) – Layyah

Overview

The project ‘Community Empowerment through Livelihood Development, HF’s initiative was funded by the British Asian Trust and the Australian Development Corporation (ADC) through HOPE’87. The project’s objectives were met in two years’ time. The goal of the project was to contribute towards poverty reduction, through dairy development. To achieve this goal a number of key activities were undertaken; capacity building of dairy farmers in dairy development and extension work, linkages with relevant line departments and value chain development through installation of chillers.
