AVSI’s presence in Côte d’Ivoire began in 2008 in response to a specific request of USAID and PEPFAR to adapt its successful social and educational project for orphans and vulnerable children then ongoing in Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. We accepted the challenge of adapting to a new context and reaching a large number of beneficiaries while still maintaining our method of building networks and relationships with each individual child and family, and with the surrounding community and associations as all of these have an impact on well-being.
Between 2008-present, AVSI has deepened relationships with communities, government officials at all levels, schools and households. Projects range from income generation and savings to peace building, youth development and literacy, irregular migration prevention.
Areas of intervention
At the heart of our method is quality education. This engagement was reinforced by the “Integrated School Feeding and Literacy Program”, funded by USDA McGovern-Dole in 7 regions of the country. Faced with the current challenges in Ivory Coast, AVSI has also strengthened its interventions in the areas of health, employment and vocational training, illegal migration, conflict management and the empowerment of the civil society organizations.
We have built a monitoring and evaluation plan and we have launched specific studies and research with local universities for a decision-making process based on evidence. To help strenghten the national system, AVSI collaborates with several technical ministries including the Ministry of Women, Child Promotion and Solidarity, the Ministry of Employment and Social Protection, the Ministry of Education National and Vocational Training, the National Program of Social Cohesion, the Ministry of Environment and Water and Forests.
