A meeting among LRC (Livelihood Recovery Committee) members and Project beneficiaries

The LRC is functional and the community elders and LEWs (Livestock Extension Workers) are providing support to the community.  The LRC members hope that with the passage of time the beneficiaries’ income from cows and small livestock will keep improving. The project beneficiaries have started receiving benefits from the 2 years project like selling milk by-products and getting baby calves of the cows.

The LEWs, during their engagement with the project beneficiaries have realized that the project is benefiting them in terms of livelihoods support through income generation. They have observed increased production from their livestock by utilizing healthy feed, implementing good livestock management practices and AI services.

During the meeting, the beneficiaries asked LRC members to communicate their request to JEN regarding the continuation of the same project in future. The project beneficiaries further shared that this project was unique because they were engaged by an NGO continuously for 2 years. Such long term project with consistency was never implemented by any organization in their area.

The most vulnerable beneficiaries in the meeting shared that they need support in terms of livestock shelter. Few of them expressed about the importance of awareness raising in women on modern livestock management practices. One of the village elders told that training on feed and feeding practices would be very productive.

The LRC informed that although the community received support in this 2 years project and learned about managing the livestock effectively, however, the needs on the ground are still high and everyone is hoping for such project in the future. It was shared that such projects strongly build the foundation for uplifting the livelihood of the community.
