But what happens to the families after graduation? Do they sustain the improvements they’ve made in their lives? A study of the program by England’s Institute of Development Studies attempted to answer these questions. The study was financed with support from the Swiss Embassy in Haiti. It looked at data from 550 participants, both from when they entered and when they graduated from the program. For 353 of those program participants, it included surveys done four years after they graduated. Researchers did an additional survey a year later for 160 participants, and at that time 60 in-depth interviews were undertaken as well.
