About Us


Our Mission Statement:
The Basic Needs Trust Fund (BNTF) provides resources to poor communities in order to

  • improve access to basic public services
  • enhance employability
  • reduce economic and social vulnerability to risks that impact income and well-being.

Our Objective:
The BNTF programme aims to reduce the vulnerability of poor communities, in a sustainable and gender-sensitive manner, through:

(i) expansion and conservation of social and economic infrastructure, using labour-intensive measures and community mobilization to enable access to a wide range of basic public services;
(ii) improvement of the human resource base through skills development and social adjustment;
(iii) promotion and strengthening of community organizations and their capacity for initiating and managing change.

These poverty reduction interventions would compliment and support national development policies and sectoral strategies for poverty reduction.
