The Livelihood Tool-kit Program targets IDPs, returnees, and affected host community members. In compliance with specific criteria, the Program aims to promote their self-reliance and facilitate their return to the labor market by improving access to a range of professional work tools. It assists skilled IDPs who had lost their key productive assets (especially basic work tools) to resume work, by way of a professional trade or other enterprise, in order to generate an income sufficient to meet their basic needs.
