This poster presents the findings of an assessment of two ASPIRES Family Care projects in Uganda that implemented savings groups as part of integrated family and economic strengthening interventions with families at-risk of a child separating. The poster includes background information on the programs and assessment, methodology used, findings, and conclusions. "Since poverty is a major driver of family-child separation, reducing families’ economic vulnerabilities has potential to reduce a family’s risk of separation," says the poster.
