Caption: Imagine being ripped from the home you have known your whole life. The places you knew, the children who were your friends, the toys you played with – all gone for ever. Your parents have lost their livelihood, you have lost your school. This is what Balkissa*, 13, from Niger has been through. “We were at peace before the arrival of the insurgents,” says Balkissa. “[They] killed people in and outside the village. We were shocked.” Now imagine the strength it takes, after you’ve lost everything, to rebuild your life. This is the strength Balkissa has shown. She is now at a Save the Children-supported school and, after struggling to adjust, she is now finding her feet, meeting new friends and performing well in class.Balkissa is one of a million people uprooted from their homes by an escalation of violence between non-state armed groups in Africa’s Sahel region. Around 5 million children across Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger now face a growing humanitarian crisis.In response, Save the Children and the EU have launched a landmark programme to tackle the education, protection and mental health needs of children caught up in the Sahel Crisis.Strong quotes “We were at peace before the arrival of the insurgents. [They] killed people in and outside the village. We were shocked.”
USAID Kulawa is the USAID Resilience in the Sahel Enhanced II (RISE II) Health Services Delivery activity in Niger (2020-2025), which works to improve access to and use of quality health services, strengthening ownership and management by communities, local government, and service providers. USAID Kulawa—meaning “care” in Hausa—strives to close the equity gap (the difference in abilities to access services) in maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), family planning/ reproductive health (FP/RH), and nutrition service access and use.
This collection of resources highlights USAID Kulawa’s evidence-based programming package of integrated health interventions and services used to reach the project’s results:
Increase availability of and accessibility to quality health services, including for youth.
Improve systems for quality of care in health services delivery.
Enhance integration in health services delivery.
Increase technical ability and management capacity of local organizations in the health sector.
This collection compiles programmatic information and results, implementation research evidence, case studies, technical briefs, tools, and other resources for implementers and project managers that can help improve health interventions in communities and in healthcare institutions.
