Protection against Destitution and Hunger

Hunger and destitution led by Poverty plays a vital role in diminishing the status of wellbeing of the vulnerable group. According to National Poverty Report (2015-16), the 24.3 percent people are still living below poverty line. The most vulnerable group of poor includes women, children, disabled and old age people. The majority of the poor people live in rural area and these people are unskilled, and engage in informal sector. The poor also lack in all of the basic human, physical and productive assets and have limited or no access to essential social services. These social and economic constraints lead towards destitution and protection against these constraints becomes paramount and far-reaching. Through the medium of better Research & Development, SPRC aims to contribute in policy-making and advocacy for the protection against destitution and hunger in the most eminent manner.
