Enhancing the Productive Capacity of Extremely Poor People in Rwanda – Final Evaluation Report

Published on 1 March 2016

Since 2011 Concern Worldwide-Rwanda and Services au Développement des Associations (SDA-IRIBA) with financial support from Irish Aid, have implemented a project called ‘Enhancing the Productive Capacity of Extremely Poor People’, also known as the ‘Graduation Programme’, in the Southern Province of Rwanda.

This final report aims to identify trends in participants’ human, social and financial wellbeing over time, to quantify any changes that are attributable to the Graduation Programme, and to identify factors that either enable or constrain sustained improvements in key outcome indicators.
