It is estimated that more than half of the population of Tajikistan lives in poverty. High levels of unemployment have forced large portions of the labor force to seek work abroad in neighboring countries in order to support their families back home. Economic desperation has also made the general population of the country vulnerable to exploitative human trafficking schemes.

Currently, food distribution is servicing impoverished communities inTajikistan, but extensive soil degradation will require the implementation of sustainable soil-enrichment programs in order to give the farmers of this impoverish nation real hopes for the future.
