Sustainable Livelihoods Relief Organization
Sustainable Livelihoods Relief Organization: Sustainable Livelihoods Relief Organization aims to develop the capacity of New Mainers to become productive members of society and integrate successfully into the labor market as both employees and business owners in order to raise the standard of living, strengthen the people’s resilience to adversity, and create a supportive environment for improved community well-being. Many leaders of the New Mainers community earned their livelihood through farming in their home countries and are interested in not only starting careers in agriculture in Maine, but in staying connected with the land. SLRO focuses entirely on sustainable career building, youth leadership in the food system, business cooperative development, and agricultural sciences. SLRO seeks to address oppression, inequity, and injustice by advocating and creating economic opportunity for New Mainers community.
