Supporting Transformation by Reducing Insecurity and Vulnerability with Economic Strengthening (STRIVE) Final Report

Summary

Supporting Transformation by Reducing Insecurity and Vulnerability with Economic Strengthening (STRIVE) Final Report

In October 2007, USAID's Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF), in close collaboration with the USAID Microenterprise Development office, initiated the STRIVE program, managed by FHI 360 (then AED) in partnership with AFE, ACDI/VOCA, MEDA, and Save the Children. A $16 million effort, STRIVE employed market-led economic strengthening initiatives with the intention of benefitting vulnerable youth and children. The program also aimed to fill current knowledge gaps about effective economic strengthening approaches and their impact on reducing the vulnerability of children and youth (ages 0–18).

In this capstone report, FHI 360 presents the results of the STRIVE project, detailing main results and lessons learned from the four country projects and highlighting monitoring, evaluation, and impact assessment findings that address the overarching research aims of the project. This report outlines STRIVE’s targets, objectives, and economic strengthening approach before summarizing the main interventions and results in Liberia, the Philippines, Afghanistan, and Mozambique, and concludes with lessons learned and recommendations.
