Graduation exercise of the Enhance Autonomy and Build Lasting Economic security for Refugees (ENABLER) programme, ACF Uganda

A beneficiary study and graduation exercise of beneficiaries of the FSL component of the ENABLER programme in Adjumani and Kyriandongo, Uganda.

The specific objective of the Enhance Autonomy and Build Lasting Economic Security for Refugees programme focused on increasing the economic self-reliance of farmers within refugees and host populations. This study aimed to:

  1. Identify relationships between household characteristics, such as land size, total livestock units and number of household tools with vulnerability and capacity level.
  2. Compare these relationships with past findings.


An extensive household survey of over 6,000 households was conducted across the implementation regions. The data was analysed in R. The results determined the distribution of each household into three vulnerability segments, of which activities were tailored to each. The results also provided insight into the specific vulnerabilities of target households, in order to inform the next year of the programme. The beneficiary follow-up, and consequent graduation model used a longitudinal comparison over time and a status assessment of the beneficiaries.
