Promising results: Concern’s graduation programme in Rwanda

22 June 2015

As an organisation, Concern Worldwide is focused on addressing extreme poverty. In differentiating this concept from poverty we emphasise the need not only to address people’s lack of basic assets and the low return on these assets but also the causes, maintainers and obstacles that prevent people from escaping extreme poverty.

The graduation approach utilises a multi-sectoral series of interventions (such as agriculture, micro-finance, cash transfers, skills trainings and asset transfers, and business development services) to support a pathway out of extreme poverty.

This report presents findings on the impact of the graduation programme in Rwanda on aspects such as nutrition, social inclusion and education.
