According to the bank document, the proposed project focuses on human development along the life cycle where risks and needs are high, but programmatic responses are weak--birth and early childhood, and adolescence and youth. The project aims at improving access and utilization of services, leading to increased human capital investment and better livelihood opportunities. It addresses these two human development goals by a) incentivizing behavioral changes and use of health and nutrition services by pregnant women, mothers, and children from poor households; and b) incentivizing returning to school, receiving second chance skills training (e.g., adult literacy programming), and improving access to new and better jobs for improved labor force participation and increase in income for poor women and youth.
