Children, Youth and Economic Strengthening
The CYES Network and Learning Platform were established to build a network of professionals dedicated to improving the lives of children through effective economic strengthening programming. By working through substantial partnerships, led by FHI 360's STRIVE Program, USAID/Displaced Children and Orphans Fund, the FHI 360 FIELD Program and The SEEP Network, the CYES Network and the Learning Platform aim to:
- Showcase the innovations and learning of CYES-focused organizations and programs
- Foster the creation of partnerships across participating organizations
- Provide a reliable source of information on the latest resources and opportunities
- Link CYES initiatives together to enhance the impact of investments in this area
FHI 360 has released an invitation to submit expressions of interest for a forthcoming RFA to engage in ES programming to support households where children are reintegrating after a period of separation and where children are at risk of becoming separated from the household.
Full details can be found at http://solicitations.fhi360.org/Solicitation.aspx, under Requests for Applications (RFAs).
EOIs are due on February 13.
