Through the program, local non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, and religious bodies and groups receive financial assistance, grants and aid in kind like school kits and hygiene kits, in order for them to undertake community development plans. Although entire communities receive the program benefits, the target beneficiaries are marginalized communities, female-headed households, the poorest of the poor, the most vulnerable, and farmers with small land holdings.
Social Development Program
The Social Development Program (SDP) promotes long-term development and sustainability by encouraging communities to be self-reliant and to maximize their own resources. This ensures empowerment at the grass roots level and involves the community as an important stakeholder.
