Project Details

ChildFund Australia commissioned the development of an evidence-informed framework to build the knowledge-base in their partner organisations about strategies to enhance the resilience of disadvantaged children and young people, the key target groups for ChildFund Projects in developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region. A set of planning, implementation and evaluation resources were developed to assist country teams to use a resilience lens in project design and review. A four-day training session was provided in Bangkok for program leaders from ChildFund Australia, and country team leaders from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste. The framework for enhancing resilience has been incorporated into key planning efforts for ChildFund projects.
