Livelihoods – Mansehra

In Mansehra, the most common livelihoods for Afghan refugees are as daily wage labourers, shopkeepers and greengrocers. A small proportion work as drivers or in offices or run their own businesses.

Many refugees receive remittances from family or friends living abroad.

Many urban refugees are not aware of training programmes conducted in Mansehra, necessitating greater outreach by UNHCR and partner organisations.
