Livelihood and Economic Empowerment

In a region where there is a lack of pretty much every necessity in life including water, health and education, it becomes very difficult for residents to get a chance to work and provide for their families. This usually leads into future generations falling into the same cycle of poverty, a horrible series of events that affect most of the African population.

 

IHelp Global offers income generating projects to beneficiaries through livelihood and economic empowerment. The idea is to invest in people, train them and empower them to generate their own livelihood. This provides them with skills, sustainable financial stability and eventually breaks them out of the cycle of poverty.

Bee Keeping

IHelp Global offers our beneficiaries an occupation of owning and breeding bees for their honey. This is then sold into the open market and income is generated to feed them and use a surplus to re-invest into developing their businesses further with a surplus amount being enough to feed the family is the goal.

 

Some of the most noticeable results of the programme have been seen in Tanzania where bee-keeping has played a major role in changing things for the better. As part of the bee-keeping project, IHelp Global contracted the manufacturing of the traditional wooden hives to local community carpenters. This created jobs for that local community.

 

These hives were given to poor women and families that live on under $1 a day

 

Currently, a total of a hundred beneficiaries from five villages, namely Meka, Mseko, Mkwajuni, Mivumoni, Kigurusimba have been trained on bee-keeping and management. All of the beneficiaries are women. Upon completion of the training, each is given two bee hives to begin their livelihood.

Support the Bee Keeping programme today to ensure more people become self-sufficient and less dependent on aid.

Livestock – Poultry

IHelp Global provides beneficiaries with female cows and the training to look after them. Milk from the animal is used for the household and the surplus to generate income. As time passes and through the results of reproduction the livestock increases and eventually the beneficiaries can go onto selling their animals into the open market for larger amounts of income.

Livestock – Shop Business

Beneficiaries are set up with a small shop, whereby locals can purchase basic everyday items like rice, beans and general household products. Usually they would have to outside of their locality to bring such items in. IHelp Global gives them the opportunity to keep trade within their own village benefitting their own local economy as well the individual lives of those who run shops.

 

As businesses grow, with extra surplus IHelp Global then offers another business selling different products to open up within certain proximity. This leads to growing trade and demands within the villages and ultimately improves the lives of many. Beneficiaries also benefit from learning new skills and developing on to living a sustainable life with the hope of a better future.
