Improving income-generating activities for vulnerable children and families at Agape Nyakibare Civil Society Organization

Income-generating activities and education are priority services for families of vulnerable children, and community savings groups are often proposed as a key intervention to facilitate them. Managing loans to ensure repayment and replenishment of funds is critical for the sustainability of such interventions. In Western Uganda, Agape Nyakibare Civil Society Organization (CSO) introduced changes to improve loan repayment from 38% to 90% in the Tukore Hamwe-Nyakibare community and spread these ideas to six other communities.

Agape Nyakibare is one of many CSOs in Uganda providing essential services to vulnerable children and families with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
