Sustainable Graduation from Poverty

Project in Uganda

The project goal is to support 120 extremely poor refugee and host community families in West Nile, Uganda, to meet their basic needs, build up micro businesses and gain income in the long term. The project has a special focus on the 600 children living within these families: The children are supported with cash grants to cover their basic needs and to make sure that they can go to school. For example, the grant can be used for scholastic materials, uniforms, and school dues. Furthermore, in cooperation with local structures, the project contributes to improving social security, reducing domestic violence and raising awareness about the protection and rights of children. The project applies the Graduation Approach, which is a targeted intervention designed to lead households out of extreme poverty through a series of multisectoral activities. The support package to the families includes consumption support, financial education and access to savings, skills and technical training, followed by micro business grants for long-term income generation. The families are accompanied throughout the project period with intensive and continuous mentoring and coaching
