Christian Aid Ireland’s adaptive programme management

Governance, gender, peace building and human rights Tackling the problems of poverty, vulnerability and exclusion that persist in parts of the world that continue to be affected by violence or political insecurity is difficult for several reasons. For one, because of the complexity of the prevailing social, economic and political systems, solutions to chronic problems are far from obvious. One response to this aspect of the challenge is adaptive programme design and management. This paper, 'Learning to make a difference: Christian Aid Ireland’s adaptive programme management in governance, gender, peace building and human rights', is the product of a multi-year collaboration between ODI and the core team of Christian Aid Ireland to assess the relevance of adaptive or trial-and-error approaches to the field of governance, peace building and human rights. It explains the basis on which Christian Aid Ireland’s current five-year programme funded by Irish Aid has become committed to an adaptive approach. It then describes and seeks to draw lessons from the programme’s first year of experience, considering the possible implications for implementation over the coming years.

Exploring the impact of community-based care for vulnerable children

The Community Based Care for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (CBCO) program operated during 2006‐2011 in Nyanza Province and portions of Eastern Province.  Christian Aid partnered with two NGOs, the Benevolent Institute for Development Initiatives (BIDII) in Eastern Province and Anglican Development Services (ADS, formerly known as Inter Diocesan Christian Community Services) in Nyanza Province, to implement the program. The central component of the CBCO program was to support household economic strengthening through the development of village 'saving and loan associations' (SLAs), which for the CBCO program consisted of a group of approximately 30 OVC caregivers.
