Case Studies

The Graduating to Resilience Activity (GRA) is a 7-year project implemented by the AVSI Foundation, in partnership with Trickle Up and American Institutes for Research (AIR). The activity is working with 13,200 households across two cohorts in the Kamwenge District of Western Uganda. These households are economically active but chronically unable to meet their basic needs without assistance. The activity serves an equal number of host and refugee communities in the district, considering each population’s unique needs. The activity aims to improve the food security and nutrition status of household members, improve the household’s economic status, and increase resilience of household members and communities. This case study highlights the impact and learnings from implementing GRA's standing committee meetings to create dialogue with and understand the needs, priorities, and concerns of communities.
