With opportunities to earn a living, people can provide for their families and send their children to school.

That’s why we work with families to start and grow small businesses that benefit themselves, the community and the environment. We have livelihoods projects in countries including Nepal, Zambia and Solomon Islands.




Impact Story

“Before we did not come out of the house,” says Mina, one of three Nepalese women who together are known as the ‘Pickle Sisters.’ “We just had to do housework, cut grass and collect firewood.”

Mina, Pima and Shanti were trapped in generational poverty and traditional gender roles leaving little room for the hope of change. But with ADRA’s support the Pickle Sisters learned how to become entrepreneurs and received a small loan to help them start a business.

“We started by taking our pickle to the market to sell. People used to criticise us and say that we are useless. But now that they see what we can do, they value us,” Mina says. Now, the women have their own shop and produce five different types of pickle.

“Now we feel confident. We have found our voice.”

The GOAL II project in Nepal is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).
