Communities and households in four districts of Huaphan and Xieng Khuang provinces are expected to benefit from a project Strengthening Livelihood Systems.
This project, supported by Luxembourg government, will help improve and increase living conditions of communities by providing funding schemes, technical training and market linkage activities in organic farming, livestock husbandry and handicraft production.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Caritas Luxembourg Organisation signed in Vientiane on Sep 7 a Memorandum of Understanding for implementing the second phase of the SLS project.
The project will be implemented over five years in 60 villages of Kham, Nonghet and Phaxay districts in Xieng Khuang, and Huameuang district in Huaphan.
The total project budget of EUR 2.02 million will be provided jointly by the Government of Luxembourg and Caritas Luxembourg.
