Project: Partnership for Resilient Livelihoods in CHT Region (PRLC)(PRLC)

Since January 2023, MJF has been implementing a project “Partnership for Resilient Livelihoods in the CHT Region” to contribute to poverty reduction and resilient livelihoods of extremely poor households in the three Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) districts of Bangladesh.

This is a comprehensive project that pays particular attention to the promotion of livelihoods for the extremely poor and expansion of nutrition services, community mobilasation, and market development for CHT’s most vulnerable people. The project will prioritise enhancing the well-being of the underprivileged and marginalised population, market access, climate-resilient agriculture, and social safety-net services. Gender equity, women’s empowerment and accessibility for people with disabilities are the core focus of this initiative. The UNDP is providing technical support to the livelihood interventions. The project will be linked with an ongoing Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) Project ‘Pathways to Prosperity’, which is supporting millions of people in Bangladesh to overcome extreme poverty.

The project is closely collaborating with the Ministry of CHT Affairs, CHT District Councils and CHT Regional Council.
