Leveraging Services to Create New Pathways
Freedom from Hunger’s three-year initiative Building the Resilience of Vulnerable Communities in Burkina Faso (BRB), features the innovative use of community-based women’s savings groups (SGs) as a platform for providing a multi-sectoral integrated package of agricultural, nutrition, financial services, and women’s empowerment programmingto help thousands of SG members overcome many of the geographic, cultural, social and economic constraints that hamper their resiliency in the face of shocks and disasters. An impact study is helping to assess whether the project has achieved its overall purpose of increasing the resilience of vulnerable communities in disaster-affected-areas of Burkina Faso. The baseline report provides insight into characteristics of participating women and their households.
