Strong Families, Thriving Children “Sugira Muryango”

Status 
Active
Region 
Africa
Description 
An alliance of public and private sector partners aims to test the effectiveness of a family based home visiting intervention as delivered by community workers to beneficiaries in the Government of Rwanda’s flagship social protection program, Vision 2020 Umurenge Program (VUP). The overall objective is to implement and evaluate the Family Strengthening Intervention as a complementary intervention for households with young children in the VUP. The Family Strengthening Intervention-designed for families living in extreme poverty-is a preventive, family-based model that uses home visiting and coaching to encourage responsive parent-child interactions, while discouraging violence against children, a persistent problem in post conflict Rwanda.
