Pilot sites

Overall, it is expected that the Action will be directly benefitting approximately 1000 households in 8-12 pilot sites and 8-12 out-reach sites each, while indirectly up to 20-50,000 households can be reached during the life-time of the project. Considering multiplier effects and further programs from the organizations and local partners participating in the Action after the Action has concluded, up to 500,000 households in target districts will benefit within 5 years after conclusion of the Action.
