Journey with Jumla
INF has a strong history of working for transformation among poor and disadvantaged communities in Jumla. In other communities in this poor and remote district, we have worked to bring people together into self-help groups, empowering and equipping members to address challenges they face. Through this process, family livelihoods and incomes improve, people with disabilities are included and cared for, local authorities are made more accountable, and women are empowered.
Developing Community livelihood and empowerment is a long, patient process. INF’s team members living locally embody patience and passion for their task.
The focus of this project is to:
- Help more than 1,500 people lift themselves above the extreme poverty line (living on less than USD 1.90 per day)
- Increase the number of households with adequate annual food consumption from 9% to 30%
- Halve the number of deaths of mothers, new-borns and children under the age of five
- Ensure that more than 50% of children with disabilities attend school (from 10% currently)
- Double the number of people using safe, clean drinking water
