End poverty in all its forms everywhere
For achieving the Goal 1 i.e. No Poverty, attention of Citizens Foundation's livelihood program is focused on providing support to the poor and vulnerable section of the society to enable them to attain viable livelihoods, develop capabilities and build resilience. Citizens Foundation works towards improving access to and control over natural resources; enhancing productive returns on labor, capital and natural resources; advancing financial inclusion; and creating an enabling environment and responsive system, which supports the needs and aspirations of poor and marginalized people.
In order to reduce rural poverty among small farm households, Citizens Foundation has come forward towards supporting communities in remote locations to improve their farm productivity through new crop introduction and improved cropping practices and developing improved irrigation systems, whereas non-farm livelihood activities are done through Poultry, Goatery, Piggery and Dairy Development. Besides we also focus on enhancement of skills in trades such as handloom, hand glove making, food processing, ornament designing etc.
