Global Asset Building

We designed and implemented the pilot SEED-Uganda with local Ugandan researchers to implement and test an asset-building intervention with a vulnerable population: orphaned children in Uganda at seven primary schools in the Rakai district. The study used MIS IDA, a custom database system developed by the Center for Social Development, to track savings. A subsequent phase of the project, known as SUUBI, was a larger study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.
