LIVELIHOOD

PROJECT JOSEPH

Provide skilled, talented people lacking resources with the means to make the most of their abilities and earn a higher, more stable income.

 

PROJECT JOSEPH

In many of the communities where we work, we encounter skilled, talented people who lack the resources to make the most of their abilities. Through Project Joseph, we find donors willing to fill this gap and provide recipients with the means to earn a higher and more stable income.

Livelihood needs vary depending on region and community, but examples include pedicabs, sewing machines, motorbikes, ovens, carpentry tools, and farming supplies.

Accountability and Monitoring

  • We ask recipients to show proof of their skill through products made, a training certificate, or existing employment that uses the skill but with poor compensation.
  • Project Joseph participants sign an agreement with NVC agreeing that the donation is endorsed solely to him or her for operation and livelihood. Thus, the donation cannot be rented out or sold.
  • Field officers regularly monitor participants. NVC reserves the right to withdraw the tool and give it to someone else.
