Philippines - Fisheries, Coastal Resources, and Livelihood (FishCORAL) – September 2021
Inday Ruperta Gagarin, is a 51 year old mother of six. Two of her children are still studying. Before the programme began, her husband was the sole provider for the family. “Now,” Ruperta says “I can buy food and clothes for my children...and school supplies. But before, it wasn’t like that. It stressed me out.” As a child, she learned how to dry fish. However, being part of the programme and attending the training provided, has drastically improved her way of life. She owns a small store and has a constant stream of customers.
The overall goal of the project is to reduce poverty in poor coastal communities, improve food and nutrition security and increase household. The fishing communities' capacity to sustainably manage fishery and coastal resources is built and ensures sustainable engagement in diversified livelihood activities.
More than 180,000 poor households living in coastal areas will benefit from this IFAD-funded project.
