CSFO Mandate

CSFO has an ambitious mandate. It aims to reach out to all the rural poor families and link them to sustainable livelihoods opportunities. It will nurture them till they come out of poverty and enjoy a decent quality of life. To achieve this, CSFO will put in place dedicated and sensitive support structures at various levels. These structures will work towards organizing the poor, building their capacities and the capacities of their organizations, enabling them access to finance and other livelihoods resources. The support institutions will play the roles of initiating the processes of organizing them in the beginning, providing the livelihoods services and sustaining the livelihoods outcomes subsequently. The support structures will also work with the unemployed rural poor youth for skilling them and providing employment either in jobs, mostly in high growth sectors, or in remunerative self-employment and micro-enterprises.
