The project targets 53,650 vulnerable households and informal workers in urban areas for Montserrado and Margibi counties, and rural areas for other counties. The REALISE Project has six components. 

Project Development Objectives (PDO)

The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to increase access to income-earning opportunities for the vulnerable in the informal sector in response to crises, expand income and livelihood support to poor and food-insecure households, and improve efficiency in managing social protection programs in Liberia.  

Components of REALISE Project

Component One

Grant Support to Vulnerable Households to Revive or Start Small Businesses (SSB)

This component will provide support to poor and vulnerable households in Montserrado and Margibi Counties, operating Non-Farm Household Enterprises (small businesses) in urban areas that have been impacted by the spread of COVID-19 in Liberia and the current global food and fuel crises on their livelihoods.

Component Two

The Temporary Employment Support & Employability Development for Vulnerable Workers (TESEDVW)

Component of the REALISE Project is intended to provide short-term jobs for 17,000 vulnerable workers in the informal sector, as well as employability development training to enable them to make informed decisions that would better their lives, and re-enter into productive engagements.
