The USAID/Twiyubake Program, also known as the Improved Services for Vulnerable Populations (ISVP) program, is assisting 50,000 vulnerable households (250,000 children, youth, and adults) by (1) increasing th
e capacity of families and communities to provide better care for vulnerable children, especially those under age five; (2) improving household and community care and support practices for vulnerable populations – especially children; and (3) increasing access to education and social services for vulnerable populations. The program is using a family-centered approach to increase resiliency and the program approach includes three key areas of focus: Economic Strengthening; Improving Care Practices and Linkages to Services.
Through a range of community based WASH interventions targeting both WASH service providers and communities, including Community-Based Environmental Health Promotion Program (CBEHPP) including community mobilization and Strengthening the existing WASH committees, Community Hygiene clubs (CHCs) in full ISVPs sectors of nutrition districts and WASH education in remaining sectors of nutrition districts and full ISVPs sectors on other Twiyubake districts.
