STRIVE: Supporting Transformation by Reducing Insecurity & Vulnerability with Economic Strengthening

Summary

In October 2007, USAID’s Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF), in close collaboration with the USAID Microenterprise Development office, initiated the STRIVE (Supporting transformation by Reducing Insecurity and Vulnerability with Economic Strengthening) Program. A 6.5-year, $16 million effort, STRIVE uses market-led economic strengthening initiatives to benefit vulnerable youth and children. The program aims to fill current knowledge gaps about effective economic strengthening approaches and their impact on reducing the vulnerability of children and youth. Managed by FHI 360 in partnership with Action for Enterprise (AFE), ACDI/VOCA, CARE, MEDA, Save the Children, and USAID, STRIVE is implementing five field projects and each is pursuing a unique economic strengthening approach, ranging from savings-led fi nance to workforce development to value chain interventions. Coupled with a robust monitoring and evaluation framework and learning strategy, STRIVE is tracking and documenting the impacts of these diverse interventions on child-level indicators related to both economic (financial), and non-economic (health, education, nutrition, etc.) vulnerability factors. As a result, STRIVE aims to identify and demonstrate interventions that can sustainably increase household incomes and/or assets and document how such increases improve (or fail to improve) the lives of children.
