WFP launches cash for work projects as part of its COVID-19 response in Tajikistan

The projects will provide 3,000 participants and their families with cash assistance for three months in exchange for their work on rehabilitating or constructing community assets such as irrigation canals, drinking water supply systems and forestry areas in the targeted communities.

“While these projects will help families meet their basic food needs, they will also stimulate the market through an injection of cash and build long-term assets that will benefit entire communities and not only the people we serve,” says WFP Representative and Country Director in Tajikistan Alberto Correia Mendes.
