The overall programme is made up of six thematic components and three cross-cutting issues. PKSF, as the core implementing partner of the project, will implement Livelihood, Nutrition and Community Mobilization components through its selected Partner Organizations (POs). The three other components of the project—Market Development, Policy Advocacy and Life Cycle Grant Pilot—are to be implemented by other stakeholders of PPEPP.

Market Development: This component will build extremely poor peoples’ confidence, productive capabilities and capacity to take risks, by linking them to new markets, adding value to their produce, and by creating new self-employment opportunities and jobs. A strong focus will be given on development of markets to increase self-employed or wage-employed activities providing better economic returns after the initial step up provided by asset transfer and skills training.
