Burkina Faso and Mali are two of the poorest countries in the world. People living in the dry zone that crosses the middle of both countries are very dependent upon farming, but crop yields have fallen dramatically due to droughts, which has led to seasonal food shortages. As a result nearly half the adult population earn less than Â£70 per year.
JRS Yei Educational Programme 31 Mar 2005
Yei County in Southern Sudan has been severely affected by decades of civil war and major military attacks. A generation has grown up never knowing peace. Many people fled to other countries as refugees whilst others remained in Sudan as internally displaced people. Infrastructure and basic services, especially education, has been devastated and hundreds of thousands of children have been denied the right to an education.
The mental health implications of the extended conflict in Sri Lanka, including the period of violent insurrection in the Southern Province in the 1980s, are only now beginning to be recognised, while the effects of the recent Tsynami have exacerbated the problem. The existing psychiatric services remain highly institutionalised and people with mental health problems are often untreated and excluded by their communities, as a result Sri Lanka now has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.
Vietnam is one of the poorest countries in SE Asia and the rapid increase in the numbers of HIV infection has far reaching economic, social and psychological effects on older people who have become the main carers for younger family members sick with HIV/AIDS and for children orphaned by AIDS.
A quarter of Kenya's population live in dry land areas, which are now under pressure from increasing numbers of people and loss of forests due to logging and clearing for farming and settlements. This has led to water shortages, soil erosion, over grazing and lack of firewood.
Because 95% of what we learn comes through sight and hearing, deaf blind children are amongst the most vulnerable in the world. In India, little has been done to improve their situation and the majority lack access to education and appropriate support within their communities. Due to parents' lack of coping mechanisms many children are confined to makeshift cages or tied to trees to ensure their security while parents are at work.
Malawi is one of the ten poorest countries in the world and the Kasungu district in Northern Malawi has twice the national average of poverty. The majority of people depend upon subsistence farming but the land is degraded with a high degree of deforestation and because of the short rainy season and frequent droughts nearly half of all households only grow enough food to last for three months of the year. Some men seek work on larger farms elsewhere but this increases their exposure to AIDS.
Much of the land in the Machakos District in the Eastern Province of Kenya is marginal and suffers from periodic drought, which impacts upon the population?s ability to earn a living from agriculture. The spread of HIV/AIDS has made the situation much worse as the epidemic is affecting the most productive family members. When these family members fall ill or die, the loss of agricultural labour and knowledge affects household food security and income.
People living in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh are some of the poorest and most vulnerable in India. A lack of adequate health services has meant that many women die in childbirth. Infant mortality rates are high. Poor maintenance of the public water supply has resulted in a water crisis, which affects the availability of safe water for drinking and irrigation for crop growing. Nutrition is poor since agricultural yields are low and disease is rife because of contaminated sources of water.
People living in the Upper East Region and the BAK district in the Ashanti region of Ghana rely on subsistence farming or fishing and struggle to meet basic needs. Poverty levels are the highest for the whole of the country. Education provision in these regions is a particular concern, with poor infrastructure, teacher shortages and few teaching materials.
People with disabilities often have a greater need for appropriate water and sanitation facilities but are less able to have access to them due to higher levels of poverty, poorer education and mobility problems. This project will develop suitable sanitation and clean water facilities to meet the needs of 350 people with disabilities and their families in 8 villages in the isolated and underdeveloped Pursat province of Cambodia.
The project will deliver a bespoke area in which Veterans Organisations will exhibit information and materials promoting their various activities in support of veterans and their dependents from within the "veterans village" to be sited in St James's Park, London.

The project aims to increase crop output and income for poor farmers in rural areas of Ghana and Togo which have suffered environmental degradation and consequent rural poverty. Project activities will include training in low external input sustainable agricultural techniques and income generation activities.
