Project Description

WAPA supports income generating activities.

Livelihood and microcredits (SDGs 8, 4 and 10), – income generating activities = IGA – and vocational training are the main spearheads of our reintegration activities. After the end of the conflict / demobilization, (ex) child soldiers (and other war victims) must start rebuilding.

Our objectives

  • Supporting vulnerable communities by setting up IGAs (income generating activities) to improve their living conditions, combat poverty and reduce unemployment through community based organizations (CBOs);

  • Offering prospects for decent jobs and sustainable livelihoods;

  • Enable the generation of an income (or a wage supplement) so that family members can be cared for in a dignified manner (children, parents, cousins and sometimes non-working men);

  • Reduce gender inequalities at work (access, pay, responsibilities);

  • Adapt work to family and physical limitations (e.g. disabilities, etc.)

  • With grants and microcredits giving access to funding sources to develop IGAs;

  • Literacy, training and development of technical and professional skills of future employees (training in marketing, inventory management, accounting, management, etc.).
