Cash Transfers for Refugees Scale-Up: Randomised Control Trial in Kiryandongo Refugee Camp, Uganda

The results of the robust external impact evaluation will fill the evidence gap for use of large lump-sum cash transfers in protracted refugee settings, and conditional on the efficacy of the intervention, will assist future decision-making about cash programs by donors and implementing organisations, promoting a shift to shift towards a more efficient and effective (in terms of enabling the creation of sustainable livelihoods) cash transfer approach.

GiveDirectly is delivering large, lump-sum, unconditional cash transfers to long-term refugees in Kiryandongo Refugee Camp, as well as to members of host communities who are living in poverty. GiveDirectly’s research partner for this project, IDinsight, will test the impact of this solution through a rigorous randomised controlled trial (RCT) as well as qualitative research.
