Operating in Southwestern Uganda, RTV has developed a low-cost, livelihood-based solution that can support ultra-poor households to become economically self-sufficient. RTV partner families increased their daily income from $0.45 to $2.67 in 36 months, moving themselves out of extreme poverty.
Extreme poverty is the most difficult and deepest form of poverty to address. Over 400 million people live in ultra poverty, with 80% living in just 14 countries, including Uganda. Ultra-poor families primarily practice subsistence farming on less than one acre and live in last-mile rural areas.
