Children in extreme poverty are at higher risk of violence, deprivation and stress, which can negatively impact children’s well-being and development. In a pilot study in Burkina Faso, 44% of children in extremely poor households reported experiencing physical abuse and 58% emotional abuse at home.

A combination of a household economic strengthening intervention and caregiver support consisting of sensitization and coaching on child wellbeing led to a number of positive outcomes for children in extremely poor households in Burkina Faso.
