The programme focused on fragile border communities in South-eastern Liberia where the arrival of refugees from Côte d’Ivoire exerted tremendous pressure on limited resources. The programme subsequently strengthened livelihoods in the agricultural sector; ensured comprehensive prevention, management and response to sexual and gender based violence; improved safety and security of children; enhanced food security; and strengthened health care.
