EMERGENCY LIVELIHOODS PROGRAMME
Estonian Refugee Council implements the emergency livelihoods programme in three regions: Cherkasy, Kirovohrad and Poltava. The objective of the programme is to provide access to livelihoods to vulnerable households affected by the armed conflict, generate new sources of income and support people to achieve the subsistence minimum.
Emergency grant support is provided for starting or resuming the following types of economic activities:
- animal husbandry: meat, milk and egg production
- horticulture: growing vegetables and fruits in greenhouses and in the kitchen-garden, etc
- beekeeping: breeding bees and production of beekeeping products
- other types of agriculture
- food production: baking, production of semi-finished products, bread, cakes, etc
- services: tailoring or clothes repair, handicrafts, construction or renovation, household services, beauty services, etc
Grants can be used to purchase combinations of goods and services in order to increase food production and/or household profit. Applications that only propose to enhance operating activities or that only require the coverage of learning costs are not supported under this programme.
WHO CAN APPLY?
