Catholic Relief Services is the official agency of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops for relief and development assistance overseas; an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in over 99 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons on the basis of need regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality. CRS works through local church and non-church partners to implement its programs. Therefore, strengthening and building the capacity of these partner organizations is fundamental to our approach in every country in which CRS operates.

A key component of CRS Nigeria's new country strategy is monitoring, survey, accountability and learning.

As noted in the following sections, there does not appear to be commonly understood or standardized definitions for graduation and transition in the OVC community in Nigeria. However, in other documentation, graduation and transition in OVC programming have been defined as follows: Graduation: A point at which all actions identified in the case plan have been completed and the child and caregiver are stable and secure enough to meet their own needs (e.g. financial, protection, emotional, health and education) without the assistance of the case manager. A case manager may monitor the status of a stable and secure child and caregiver for a period of time prior to graduation to ensure the child and caregiver are unlikely to require additional support in the future. Transition: The transfer of a child and his or her caregiver from direct PEPFAR support to support provided by another source (e.g. government, community, a program funded by another donor, etc.)
