The Impact of Cash Assistance on the protection and wellbeing of children and adolescents

The Impact of Cash Assistance on the protection and wellbeing of children and adolescents: Case Studies from Ethiopia and Somalia

​The session will present findings and lessons learned from projects in two different contexts that decided to integrate cash for child protection outcomes.  The two projects explore how cash can be integrated into child protection outcomes, using two different methodologies and target groups.

The first project, implemented by World Vision, will look at  the impact of multi-purpose cash assistance on foster families and the well-being of children under their care in Baidoa, Somalia, highlighting the results of post-distribution monitoring surveys.  

While the second project, implemented by the International Rescue Committee in partnership with YLabs, will illustrate how to co - design cash programming for and with adolescents, using a youth centred approach in Sheder camp, Ethiopia.
