Livelihood

Livelihood

Our long-term projects usually follow after we provide humanitarian assistance to countries in need. These projects aim to increase skills and education of the poorest families, and improve their long-term life situation.

We primarily focus on improving cultivation of local crops, breeding of domestic animals, fishing, formation of cooperatives at local level and introduction of micro-financial savings or lending mechanisms that allow local residents to become more financially stable.

Caritas CR focuses on efficient and sustainable use of local natural resources and the maximum respect to the environment. Activities of this type of assistance are currently carried out for example in Philippines, in the past in Haiti or Indonesia.
