This study investigates the impact of Save the Children’s Household Economic and Food Security (HEFS) asset transfer programme on intra-household relationships and livelihood dynamics of extreme poor households using a gender lens. The key component of the programme is based on an asset transfer of usually one to two key assets. Using mixed-methods, the paper explores how the intervention contributes to building extreme poor’s resilience defined as the “capacity of a household to cope with different household shocks and hazards in their normal day to day life and return to the original situation”.
