Welcome to the Centre for Livelihoods & Humanitarian Support. We are committed to ensure people’s livelihoods are sustainable, hence our two-pronged approach: strengthen humanitarian response on the one hand, while helping real persons secure a sustainable livelihood. Our quest for high standards in humanitarian response, and our passion for creativity and innovation in livelihoods strategies set us apart from ordinary professionals.
When we talk livelihood we’re talking small business, we’re talking entrepreneurship in all spheres, in addition to small income generating projects that livelihoods have traditionally been construed to imply. We are talking innovation, we are talking creative ideas and platforms!
When it comes to humanitarian response, we are talking quality and efficiency, we are talking minimum standards in humanitarian response, we are talking best practices in delivering aid, we are talking aid effectiveness and humanitarian accountability …
We do not believe in just building capacity for these things, but proving and demonstrating their applicability and relevance. If its entrepreneurship, we want to build platforms to demonstrate that enterprise can transform livelihoods – that it can be done by ordinary persons. When its humanitarian response, we want to both build the capacity of other professionals and to demonstrate by doing that the standards we talk about can be achieved.
We want to demonstrate by word and by work.
