Cushite communities have built a rich knowledge base that has sustained their ways of life for centuries. However, years of marginalization have left the rural economy depressed and without the ability to cope.
RRDO responds by supporting alternative livelihoods, respecting employment dignity and creating engines for economic diversification and prosperity. Our “livelihood partnerships” with local communities concentrate on natural resource management, diversification of livelihood options that underpin our other programming to enhance livelihood security now and in the future.
