Family Reintegration (FARE) was a pilot project implemented by AVSI and funded by FHI 360’s ASPIRES project. The aim was to learn about the role economic strengthening (ES) interventions might play in preventing unnecessary family-child separation and in fostering reintegration of formerly separated children in the Kampala and Wakiso districts of Uganda. FARE offered participating families household-level case management support, social services such as counseling, parenting, and life skills training, and ES activities including savings groups, cash transfers, business skills training and, near the end of the project, short training on producing household goods for sale. In addition to collecting data on key project results indicators, FARE generated detailed costing data disaggregated for all major project activities. This report provides an analysis of FARE’s recorded project costs by intervention category and attempts to determine incremental costs of the interventions themselves.
