Income Generation Activities
The Income Generation Activity Scheme (IGAS) aims to help families gain a regular income and reduce the risk of households resorting to their children’s labour to gain additional income. The participating families committed to send their children to school, to take good care of them and to prevent them from working on the streets. DT provides loans of up to $300, used by families to start small businesses. They are also offered training and close support to ensure the business is sustainable. The IGAS has been extremely successful and continues to sustainably grow. Families have respected the contract and worked hard to develop their businesses.
