SAFP Family Development program
Under Family Development regular sponsorship program supported by Save A family Plan CHASS could extend support to 280 most needy families from 13 regions during 2014-15. The support is used for improving their socioeconomic conditions through house visits, awareness creation, infrastructure development, education assistance to children, medical treatment and livelihood development promotion etc. The monthly sponsorship support was found very useful to the poor families to have initial capital to start micro- enterprises of their choice and earn regular income from it.
