MPRLP Stories of Change

Stories of Change tell the stories of poor families and individuals reached by MPRLP livelihoods improvement interventions and initiatives. These stories relate how the rural poor in tribal areas demonstrate their capacity to thrive when given a little initial support by MPRLP. They show that, individually or collectively, they can fight poverty. They show that, with a little guidance, they can manage resources. The stories here are about how remote tribal villages are undergoing unexpected socio-economic changes. The stories bear witness to the value of MPRLP’s efforts.
