Building Self-Reliance for Refugees

As of 2018, over 70 million people have been forced to flee their homes to escape persecution and conflict

In 2013, UNHCR engaged Trickle Up to design, implement and test the Graduation
Approach (GA) in refugee settings in Burkina Faso, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, and
Zambia.

This project brief summarizes an independent evaluation of Trickle Up’s performance against four project objectives; the appropriateness of the GA for refugees; and initial recommendations on how organizations can apply a refugee lens to Graduation programs.
