PRICE

'Poverty Reduction Initiative through Community Empowerment'

In remote Chin State, 70% of the population live below the poverty line, with malnutrition and child mortality rates the highest in the country. The PRICE Project is providing literacy, numeracy and business training along with agricultural and technical skills to improve household nutrition and income sources. Savings and loans groups are helping to build community bonds to ensure their journey out of poverty continues and improving capacity of these village level groups to manage and access financial capital for rural economic development.

The PRICE project supports increased engagement of poor and marginal households in the rural economy of Matupi with improved inclusion, particularly for female headed households and those with disabilities, empowerment and participation in decision-making.

The PRICE project is currently in its third consecutive phase running from 2015 – 2021 in Matupi Township, Chin State.
