• Social mobilization and building strong institutions of the poor is critical for unleashing the innate capabilities of the poor.

•An external dedicated and sensitive support structure is required to induce the social mobilization, institution building and empowerment process.

• Facilitating knowledge dissemination, skill building, access to credit, access to marketing, and access to other livelihoods services underpins this upward mobility.
