The success of the PRM-funded ASET project in Ninewa and Duhok is a testament to the importance of investing in the resilience and recovery of conflict-affected communities. By providing targeted interventions and support, the project has helped individuals to build better livelihoods, improve their income, and contribute to the wider economy. The examples of Mohammed Tahir and Wissam Youhanna in Ninewa and Abdulsalam Ahmad and Ibrahim Salih in Duhok highlight the transformative impact of the program, and provide hope for the future of these regions.
The story of Florence: Coaching and livelihood trainings help families in Southwestern Uganda achieve their goals
We tell the story of Florence, 42 years old and the mother of nine children, just one of the 6,824 households actively involved in the USAID-funded Graduating to Resilience Activity in Kamwenge District, Southwestern Uganda.
Florence’s children had no access to quality education, and in and out of their school since she had no money to pay for their fees. Worse, the family couldn’t afford to feed the children with nutritious meals and their health was in disarray. Florence’s hopes of guiding her children to a bright future appeared dim.

2020 may not have been the year we dreamed of, nor did we see it coming. But it will most certainly be one we will never forget. Everyone around the world had to re-adjust to a new way of life. Millions lost their livelihoods and shelter, struggling to make ends meet; millions lost their loved ones. We at AVSI have also lost one of our dear colleagues and friends.
