To bring families from a state of poverty and vulnerability to sustainability and resilience, the program will focus on two major pathways:
1) Empowerment and Institutional Strengthening:
Haihui will use the Values Based Holistic Community Development (VBHCD) approach for empowerment of individuals, strengthening women’s leadership, enhancing social harmony, building grassroots institutions and enabling them to emerge as strong players in the value chain.
2) Sustainable Production and Marketing System:
Haihui will undertake interventions targeted at creating improved value chain performance and strengthened linkage among actors. First, production support systems must be set in place which will be accessible to all rural farmers including agro-vet inputs and service hubs as well as credit linkages. Secondly, in order to develop production to meet an economy of scale, Haihui will work to strengthen appropriate selection methods, artificial insemination, proper management and healthcare, fodder/forage production and quality standards. Other important interventions related to production and marketing include establishment of business hubs, promotion of processing and product diversification and supplementary activities for improving livelihoods.
