Impacts of the Social Cash Transfer Pilot Programme (sctpp) on the local economy in Ethiopia

2011 — By UNFAO

The Social Cash Transfer Pilot Programme (SCTPP) was launched by the Tigray Bureau of Labour and Social Affairs (BOLSA) with support from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in the Tigray region of Ethiopia in 2011. The goal of the SCTPP is to improve the quality of life for orphans and vulnerable children, the elderly and those with disabilities, and to enhance their access to essential services such as healthcare and education. Specific objectives include contributing to the reduction of poverty, hunger and starvation, increasing school enrolment and attendance, improving the health and nutrition of children, and generating information on the feasibility, cost-effectiveness and impact of the SCTPP.
