Emergency Resilience Grants Project (ERG - DFID) - Phase 1,2,3

(February 2019 - April 2021)

The Emergency Resilience Grants Project was designed to scale-up YECRP results, aiming to improve livelihoods of affected populations in vital economic sectors through meeting the immediate needs of vulnerable households and communities while linking them to longer term recovery efforts.


This was to be achieved through building the capacity and skills of the targeted beneficiaries and supporting them with small grants to strengthen their continuity and improve livelihoods using sustainable approaches and by improving micro producers’ productivity, incomes and quality of products/services. Furthermore, the project added an additional sector of health, targeting micro clinics in hard-to-reach areas. This sector was informed by the midline results of the YECRP and noted community needs to access micro health providers, specifically mothers and newborns.
