LWA Field Report: Economic Strengthening for Vulnerable Children
MEDA was part of the team that researched and produced the 2008 report Economic Strengthening for Orphans and Vulnerable Children: Principles of Program Design and Technical Recommendations for Effective Field Interventions. This guide filled an important gap at the intersection between programs seeking to support vulnerable children and those seeking to reduce their economic challenges. The document outlinesbest practices for economic strengthening that are appropriate to multi-sectoral teams and programs.
