We use cross-sectional data to assess the impact of the programme on livelihood where propensity score matching technique has been adopted in analysing the data. Results show that programme participants' self-employment, income, food consumption, saving, health seeking behaviour, empowerment and social awareness have been increased significantly. However, we find that addressing sanitation and hygiene practices remains the key challenge. So to bring a sustainable solution to the issue, a collective effort of slum owners, dwellers and slum community people along with program is needed. These findings are potentially important for expansion and replication of this type of programme.
