Extreme Poverty Project (shiree)

livelihoodDSK implemented extreme poverty eradication project in comparison to others, bears three distinct features: First, most social protection programs suffer from tokenism marked by modest transfer of resources that possibly ameliorate extreme poverty but not likely to lift them out of extreme poverty. DSK- shiree project has budgeted Taka 28000 (originally equivalent to USD 400) per beneficiary to be spent over a period of two years of intervention. This comes to roughly Taka 1167 per month, which is a sizable improvement over Taka 400-500 allocated for most government-run social protection programs. Second, researches show that the problem of income erosion due to ill-health and health shocks is as important as the problem of income generation (Begum and Sen 2005; Sen 2003). However, most social protection programs do not explicitly address the income erosion concerns due to ill-health and health shocks: beneficiaries of income generating activities (IGA) do not get automatic entitlement to health services. In this respect the blending of livelihood activities with health services via health insurance that DSK pursues is worthy of analytical attention.Third, most government-run social protection programs operate in the rural areas. Not only the urban poor and the poorest are excluded, they are often deliberately kept out of the social protection programs to discourage either rural-urban migration or encourage the return of urban migrants back to rural areas.
