Economic Strengthening for Vulnerable Children Resource Guide (PDF)

LIFT’s Economic Strengthening for Vulnerable Children resource guide provides guidance on how to look at household economic vulnerability, livelihood needs and assets, and to undertake assessments to align select ES interventions with the needs of target beneficiaries and opportunities within local markets. The document focuses on one leading intervention in each of the three livelihood pathways:

  • Provisioning – Cash and asset transfers
  • Protection – Savings groups
  • Promotion – Enterprise development (microfinance, business skills, etc.)

The guide is designed to provide non-economic strengthening implementing partners with guidance on how to design appropriate economic strengthening interventions for vulnerable children and their caregivers focusing on the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of different economic strengthening interventions.
