Abstract: In Chapter 1, the first essay explores a school meals program in Ethiopia. In food-insecure parts of poor countries school meals can provide a strong incentive to poor households to send their children to school. School meals appear to be attractive as they may not only increase school participation but may also improve learning and cognitive development. Chapter 2 investigates the role of poor eyesight on educational outcomes in rural Ethiopia. Chapter 3 uses data on four financial literacy training programs to examine whether financial literacy training can improve microfinance clients' risk management in order to avoid over-indebtedness and reduce vulnerability. Chapter 4 investigates the role of parental migration on children's school participation using data from Moldova. While migration, through remittances, has the potential to contribute to children's education by making more resources available, parental migration may be detrimental as it implies parental absence.
