USAID: Better Lives for Mes Enfants Activity


Deadline: 21-Jun-21

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement award from qualified entities to implement the activity entitled “Better Lives for Mes Enfants” (BLM).

While building on accomplishments and lessons of the current CTIP program, the proposed activity will pursue a more community-led, locally-driven approach to ensure ownership and sustainability of the initiative to reduce forced child begging.

The proposed activity is the next logical step, focusing assistance on empowering community leaders to involve influential religious leaders and parents.
