Important development programs such as microfinance often do not reach the very poorest households. A new set of initiatives, called Graduation programs, have targeted these very poor households. Their objective is to graduate them out of poverty in a sustainable manner and make them resilient so they do not fall back into poverty. This research seeks to validate how important is psychological support such as life planning,
confidence building, and strengthening social awareness in helping poor women to graduate in a resilient way, by testing across a fresh sample taken from three different programs seeking to reduce extreme poverty. Currently, the research is going on following a mixed-method approach in different parts of Bangladesh.
