Reducing poverty in the first 18 years of life: Burundi
MetadataShow full item record
This illustration presents combined findings from a research project on monetary and multidimensional child poverty and the evaluation of Concern Worldwide’s ‘Terintambwe’ programme in Burundi. It is based on information from survey data collected for the Concern programme evaluation in December 2013 and April 2015 and on discussions with 40 children and 91 adults in Cibitoke and Kirundo provinces from March to May 2015. The Terintambwe programme was implemented over a period of two years to help the poorest households with cash transfers and training on how to set up income generating activities. Households also received health insurance cards for all members, more general training and home visits by case workers regarding hygienic practices, nutrition and gender equality and support in setting up kitchen gardens. This comprehensive package of support has the potential to improve both household wealth and child wellbeing. This research tries to understand how household wealth overlaps with child wellbeing and to what extent improvements in household wealth go hand-in-hand with improvements in child wellbeing.
