- Have the potential to produce employment and marketable skills, such as sewing centers and agricultural cooperatives;
- Assist vulnerable groups;
- Support high-impact, quick-implementation activities which benefit a large number of people within one year without requiring further assistance;
- Have the potential to generate additional income; and/or
- Involve a significant local contribution in cash, labor, or material, and are within the ability of the local community to operate and maintain.
