Description

We tend to think about poor people in a one-dimensional way (poor people are poor because they don’t have money), which results in program interventions that address only the financial needs of people but do not improve their resilience. This lesson encourages reflection about one’s own assets, both tangible and intangible, and the vulnerabilities of different groups (youth, women, widows, minorities etc.). This lesson can be done with small groups (best when working with extension or community educators) or with participants working individually (best when working directly with beneficiaries). This lesson was developed based on the DFID  Livelihoods Framework.
