Sambhav - Livelihood Restoration Program revived small but viable, pre Covid livelihoods by Financial Aid to restore working capital that had been totally eroded by survival without income. Roadside shops, food stalls, small vendors, florists, vegetable vendors, fruit sellers, road side garments sellers, stage technicians like make-up men, dressers etc. were assisted by CSP to restart their businesses/ livelihoods.
