Sustainable urban livelihood
CURE believes that every household should have access to sustainable livelihoods. CURE seeks to reduce urban poverty by building decent and sustainable livelihood pathways, especially for women and young people that are linked to the city’s core economies. CURE has adopted comprehensive livelihood projects that address the complete range of livelihood interventions required to sustainably enhance incomes. Interventions include providing access to skills and employment, micro enterprise and entrepreneurship development, assets, credit, and market links, and management skills in areas such as personal finance. New livelihood pathways are determined through value chain studies and livelihoods mapping that harmonize with the city economy.
