Project name: Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihoods Project
Institutions: Catholic Relief Services and Gender Innovation Lab World Bank
Description: The Feed the Future Nigeria Livelihood Project matches vulnerable households and communities with the skills they need to engage effectively in the local economy to reduce poverty and malnutrition. A variety of women’s groups (producer, savings, safe spaces, caregiver) have been established. Through these groups, women are trained on establishing home gardens, enterprise, credit, and income generation, and a monthly cash transfer is given to female heads of extremely vulnerable households. Each beneficiary household receives individualized support from a trained community liaison, and the project engages with men, traditional leaders, and other key influencers to create an enabling environment for women and girls to participate.
