Empowering Families to Stand on Their Own: The Helping Hands Project’s Approach to Fighting Economic Crisis.
The Helping Hands Project, run by the College of General Practitioners of Sri Lanka, is a social responsibility initiative to support the families affected by the economic crisis. The project focuses on helping selected families in four key areas: providing immediate relief with dry rations, supporting the education of children, empowering families to start their own self-employment, and addressing health issues.
One of the unique aspects of the Helping Hands Project is its emphasis on empowering families to stand on their own. Instead of just providing donations, the project aims to provide support and resources that will allow families to become self-sufficient. The self-employment opportunities that have been identified for these families include starting a sewing business, starting a small business such as a tea boutique, starting a poultry farm, starting a small bakery, and starting a cultivation.
As Sri Lanka continues to face an economic crisis, it is more important than ever to support initiatives like the Helping Hands Project. By providing families with the means to become self-sufficient, we can not only help them to survive in the short-term, but also give them the tools to build a better future for themselves and their communities.
The Helping Hands Project not only aims to improve the lives of individual families, but also to contribute to the overall economic recovery of Sri Lanka. By empowering families to start their own business and become self-sufficient, we are not only helping them to survive in the short-term, but also laying the foundation for long-term economic growth.
Empowering families to star their own business will lead to an increase in small and medium enterprises, which are a vital component of any economy. These businesses will not only provide jobs for the families themselves, but also for others in their community. This will help to stimulate economic activity and create a virtuous cycle of growth.
In addition, by supporting the education of children, we are investing in the future workforce of Sri Lanka. Educated and skilled individual are more likely to find good jobs, start their own business, and contribute to the economy in a positive way.
Furthermore, by addressing the health issues of the families we are supporting, we are also helping to reduce the burden on the healthcare system. This will not only benefit the families themselves, but also the larger community and the economy as a whole.
Overall, the Helping Hands Project’s approach of empowering families to stand on their own is a holistic way to address the economic crisis in Sri Lanka. By providing support and resources in areas such as self-employments, education, and health, we are not only helping individual families, but also contributing to the overall economic recovery of the country.
