Livelihoods are the many different ways that people can earn their living and meet their essential needs. RDF works with people who are denied the right to a dignified livelihood and have not benefited from economic development.
RDF supports people as they build a reliable way of life through our agriculture and livestock programmes. These programmes include developing agricultural techniques, helping families to store food, supporting people to securing access to their land, working with people to teach them skills they can use to make money. Our work focuses strongly on helping people to meet their basic needs. But we also support peoples’ rights to land, shelter, water and their right to a fair wage and good working conditions.
