The World Bank

"The Government of Uganda, through the World Bank-funded Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project (DRDIP) project, is taking preventative action to combat violence against [refugee] children by creating an environment for children’s empowerment and participation," says this news release from the World Bank. The projest will "support investments in 14 refugee hosting districts through three types of subprojects: (i) social and economic services and infrastructures, including health, education and WASH services, (ii) sustainable environment and natural resources management; and (iii) livelihoods programs."
