Enhancing Resources and Increasing Capacities of Poor Household Towards Elimination of their Poverty ( ENRICH)

ENRICH

ENRICH is an integrated Pilot Project Started in February 2010 with the assistance of PKSF which is being implemented in Parerhat Union of IndurkaniUpazilaunder the District of Pirojpur and Kalipur Union of BanskhaliUpzila under the District of Chittagong.

Basically ENRICH is a new poverty reduction program. The Program seeks to end poverty by working with the poor households in association with the local government and other committed stakeholders to help the households lift themselves out of poverty. The overall goal of the program is to reduce poverty on a sustainable basis towards its total elimination at the household level and eventually throughout the country.

The overriding objective is to un-bundle the hidden potentialities of the poor household, encouraging and assisting them to bring changes in their economics condition themselves. They would need access to appropriate technologies as well as to health and education so that their productivity would increase and also to markets so that they can optimize returns from their market operations. Critical to the success of this program is the principle that the households are empowered to lead the process of their own development; obviously a lot will depend on willingness and hard work of the people themselves.
