USAID’s Displaced Children and Orphans Fund has been funding initiatives to support vulnerable children for the past 25 years. Two such initiatives are the Program on Forced Migration and Health’s (PFMH) Care and Protection of Children in Crisis Affected Countries (CPC) initiative at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and the STRIVE Program managed by the Academy for Educational Development (AED). Recognizing the need to explore livelihoods interventions and economic strengthening activities as they pertain to child protection and well-being in crisis settings, these programs worked to bring together experts from around the world in a workshop hosted in Kampala, Uganda in February 2008.
The purpose of the workshop was to identify key program learning needs in the area of livelihoods interventions and economic strengthening activities as they pertain to child protection and well-being in crisis settings. This meeting summary presents and overview of the discussion and findings of the meeting of the aforementioned groups.
