ISLAMABAD: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has initiated a new scheme to provide livelihood facilities to Afghan refugees and Pakistani communities.
According to a spokesman of UNCHR, the UN agency and Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund has been signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide livelihood facilities to Afghan refugees and Pakistani communities.
He told such projects would have an important impact on the lives of the vulnerable people spending a low standard of life. This project would help lift the Afghan refugee population and members of the host community out of poverty and provide them with sustainable livelihoods.
Under the project, the most vulnerable households would be provided with intensive coaching in the area of agriculture and private enterprise with different packages, including livestock, to support such initiatives, as well as access to financial services.
The project would help 3000 households in Mansehra and Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Chaghi in Balochistan.
