Adding to the evidence: Concern’s graduation programme in Burundi

Adding to the evidence: Concern’s graduation programme in Burundi

22 June 2015

As an organisation Concern Worldwide is focused on tackling extreme poverty and the key dimensions that cause or maintain it: specifically inequality, risk and vulnerability.

Our graduation programmes are designed not only to move an individual or household above a specific income threshold but to also bring about improved returns on new and existing assets. The term ‘graduation’ is used to refer to the movement of individuals or households out of extreme poverty and into food security and sustainable livelihoods.

This report presents findings on the impact of the graduation programme in Burundi on aspects such as food security, social inclusion, health and education.
