Impact Evaluation of Cash and Food Transfers at Early Childhood Development Centers in Karamoja, Uganda

2013 — By Daniel O. Gilligan, Amy Margolies, Esteban Quiñones, Shalini Roy

This report is a revised draft of the Final Impact Report of an impact evaluation study of the World Food Programme (WFP) project to provide food and cash transfers to households with children participating in Early Childhood Development (ECD) centers in the Karamoja sub region of Uganda.

The analysis reported here provides evidence on the relative impact of these food and cash transfers on household food security, frequency of child food consumption, child anthropometry, anemia status, ECD center participation, and child cognitive and non cognitive development.

The report also considers the support from this evidence for plausible pathways for impacts on child cognitive and non cognitive development from the effect of WFP transfers on child nutrition and health, as well as a role for stimulation through increased ECD center participation.
