Poverty alleviation and enhancing the status of poor communities

The Baron Louis Fiorino Royal Foundation forms partnerships on the basis of rigorous criteria. Before finalizing partnerships the BLFRF ensures that the partners have well targeted community outreach programs that are committed to enhancing the economic welfare and income of the disadvantaged peoples. The target population for the project is poor rural and urban communities, with specific emphasis being placed on gender and empowerment of women. Benefits accrue directly to the vulnerable through income generation, improved physical and social infrastructure, and training and skill development support.

The results are alternative livelihood projects for rural groups, especially the poor and disadvantaged. Hunger, malnutrition, disease, shelter, illiteracy and other poverty related concerns are challenges that BLFRF seek to address.
