The Sustainable Coastal Livelihoods Project has
had several significant achievements in restoring
livelihoods.  Boats were constructed and delivered,
equipped with engines and gears for affected
fisherfolk.  Local villagers were engaged in several
cash for work programs, including programs to
pay villagers to collect mangrove seeds and plant
them in tsunami affected areas and to clean up
the village sewer line.  A micro finance initiative
was launched under the project.  Freshwater
aquaculture entrepreneurs received training in
fish seedling production using artificial breeding
techniques.  Through a public private partnership
a green learning centre is being supported, along
with a revolving micro finance loan program, and
a water treatment project. Two Crisis Corps Volun 
teers (CCVs) also arrived in the project communi 
ties and have been supporting the micro finance
program and a village greening initiative.
