A ‘Livelihood Support Programme’ by Garden Reach Slum Development (GRSD) benefitted from a £9,000 grant from ERSF.

The money was used to provide training programmes in embroidery, tailoring, carpentry, electrical wiring and kite making as well as staff payments, rent and electricity costs.

Some 400 people in the community received the training designed to improve their skills and their chances of finding work or starting a small business.
