STRIVE, an associate award under the FIELD-Support LWA funded by the USAID Displaced Children and Orphans Fund (DCOF), aims to understand if improvements in the economic wellbeing of households translate into child-level impacts. Prime FHI 360 and partners Action for Enterprise (AFE), ACDI/VOCA, CARE, MEDA, Save the Children, implemented four field projects under the STRIVE program in Africa and Asia between 2008 and 2013.

As a result, STRIVE aims to identify and demonstrate interventions that can sustainably increase household incomes and/or assets and document how such increases improve (or fail to improve) the lives of children.
